So effusive and vibrant, yet also blessed with great aromatic charm, this has a stunning combination of pineapple juiciness and smoky character. Then comes the very long, precise finish that’s so stony. From biodynamically grown grapes.

This well-cut white is light- to medium-bodied, with a minerally underpinning of smoky flint to the expressive range of nectarine, star fruit, pink grapefruit granita and cherry blossom flavors, framed by zesty acidity.

Sleek and very minerally, this is a dry riesling for fans of the grape, or anyone who just likes intensely mineral dry whites. Lots of smoke and flint with some dried lemon peel. Very long, quite steely finish that’s bursting with energy. From biodynamically grown grapes.

Humbrecht’s 2018 Riesling Roche Granitique is mostly young-vine wine from Brand with a bit of Sommerberg thrown into the mix. Bright and taut in the glass, the Roche Granitique is a dry, bracing wine built on vertical energy. Lemon oil, white flowers and mineral tones all grace this steely Riesling from granite soils.

Flinty reduction and lemony zestiness create a very appetizing nose. The palate delvers more of those zesty, juicy, mouth-watering lemon notes while the full, rounded body adds a stony depth to those ripe Amalfi lemon flavors. There is tautness, even on this generous body. The dry finish tapers beautifully into a notion of ripe lemon zest.
