Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay and Auxerrois blend from Alsace opens with a musty golden delicious apple, brioche, and banana bouquet. On the palate, this wine medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, zesty and bright. The flavor profile is a green apple and saline blend with notes of stony minerality, honeydew melon, and some white peach. I also detected hints of white pepper, almond, custard, and a touch of coconut. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine would pair well with a beach. With food, I would pair it with crab cakes. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 8/21 - Pale yellow color. The nose is still massively dominated by the influence of limestone, so the wine is still austere and tight today. As usual, this young Zind takes time to open up but eventually reveals fresh citrus aromatics and above all a sensation of wet stones. On the palate, we find the typical delicate aspect of the Windsbuhl wines which are characterized by an airy, lacy structure. All the energy of the wine is carried by a magnificent ripe and salivating acidity. We do not find the solar character of the vintage on this wine as it expresses character and lightness at the same time. The finish is long and salivating.
