Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Roche Granitique is part of the "Roches" series, in which the influence of the different soils on which the vineyards are found is demonstrated by various monovarietal wines. The collection’s soils are granite, limestone and volcanic stone.
The vineyards for Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Roche Granitique are located on granite soil that is poor in organic matter, on the hillsides of Brand. They have an average age of 33 years and produce around 65 hectolitres per hectare. These granite soils produce vertical wines that are expressive at an early age and with a good aromatic potential.
Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Roche Granitique is a mineral Riesling from Alsace, with fruity touches and a little residual sugar.
