2009 Zind Humbrecht "Brand" Riesling

SKU #1116112 95 points Wine Enthusiast

 With the most wonderful Riesling aromas, this is an impressive and powerful statement of the combination of rich fruit and steeliness that marks Riesling in 2009. There is great intensity of white currants, ripe pears, shot through with lime and nectarines.  (12/2011)

94 points Wine Spectator

 This is a big Riesling, offering lots of minerally smoke on the nose and palate, with intensely vivacious, crackling acidity throughout. Flavors of white peach, papaya and star fruit are focused and pure, but ultimately play second fiddle right now to the block of mineral character. The finish is fresh and clean, with a long, spicy note of freshly ground white pepper. Drink now through 2034.  (10/2011)
