2018 Zind-Humbrecht 'Roche Roulee' Riesling Alsace

$49.95

Immediately, the nose is swept by the classic smoke aroma of Riesling. Quickly followed by plush white plums, lime juice and rind, as well as just-ripe seckel pears. Beyond the fruit, baby's breath flowers surround the bouquet ethereally. On the palate, ripe fruit and racy acidity ask for another sip.

Wine Enthusiast

A slight whiff of smokiness is all that escapes on the shy, closed nose. The palate of this wine sweeps in with juicy flow, transporting a wealth of ripe, fresh Mirabelle plums framed by a beautiful, pithy texture. The wine offers intensity and a dry finish, and seems like a summer breeze.
