Domaine Zind Humbrecht Pinot Gris Heimbourg 2020

5 units available online.
Product description

The Pinot Gris is planted on the upper part of the Heimbourg vineyard in Turckheim. Facing west, on a steep slope, it enjoys a relatively cool climate being exposed to the valley winds. At the opposite of the Rotenberg vineyard located on the other side of the valley, the Heimbourg vineyard gets a few more hours of sunshine in the evening, which probably explain why the vineyard produces more aromatic style wines. The Oligocen limestone soil is here a complex combination of old Oolithic pebbles cemented in an aggressive calcareous limestone, rich in iron. The influence on the wine is tremendous. 

Intense yellow colour. The nose is still quite discreet, showing delicate white fruit, pears, peach, a hint of smokiness and wax like most other Pinot Gris from that vintage. It really takes some time to open up in the glass at this very early stage. The mouth is very dry, but supported by a velvety texture that brings a certain roundness on the middle palate. Medium long finish, supported by a salivating acidity and a very elegant structure.
