ZIND-HUMBRECHT Riesling 2015

(Alsace, France) $29

Here’s an oh-my-god-this-is-delicious dry riesling for an omg under-$30 price. No surprise it’s from Zind-Humbrecht, long considered one of the finest estates of Alsace and an estate known for dry rieslings with mega-watt flavors. The aroma greets you with effusive waves of exotic spices and a wonderful marmalade-like zestiness. Then the palate explodes in exciting mouthfilling fruit interspliced with lively bursts of salty minerality and white pepper. The texture is pure silk. And best of all, a fresh light crispness hums through the wine like an electric current. Zind-Humbrecht, in business since 1959, owns many of the top vineyards, including holdings in four of the top Grands Crus of Alsace. (12% abv)
