Dry (off dry to some) Riesling that sports ripe citrus fruits with good complexity already. Most importantly, the ripe fruits are balanced by ripe acidity! Excellent dry extract (you can call it concentration). If you love intense white, try this single vineyard Riesling (from Herrenweg vineyard) made by famous Zind-Humbrecht!

After having been hailed on in 2013, this vineyard performed very well in 2014 with the Riesling grape. Located at the opening of the Munster valley on gravelly soil, the Herrenweg vineyard benefits from a dry and sunny climate. The grapes ripen quickly and usually show great aromatic potential. Older vines will be able to produce good structured wines with amazing concentration. This wine took 18 months to finish its fermentation, obliging us to bottle it later than usual. The 2014 is probably one of the top Herrenweg Riesling produced in recent years.
