2005 Zind-Humbrecht, June 16, 2009

Next month, the Toronto Vintner’s Club is pleased to present a rare tasting of exclusive Alsatian wines from one of the oldest producers in the region. The Humbrecht family has long winemaking traditions, going back to the Thirty Years War (1620). The Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was created in 1959 with the union of family owned properties of Zenon Humbrecht and of Emile Zind. It is known as one of, if not the best producers in the region.

The region produces only 7 varietals; Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinto Blanc, Sylvaner, Vendange Tardive and Selection de Grains Nobles. We are pleased to present 3 of these varietals from various vineyards owned by Zind-Humbrecht including some Grand Cru. And, the 2005 vintage is not just another new vintage but a great one, equal and perhaps superior to the much lauded 2001 vintage.
