About this product
The Zind is produced every year since 2004 from Chardonnay (60%) and Auxerrois (40%) exclusively located on the Clos Windsbuhl in Hunawihr. The Chardonnay was chosen to replace the Pinot-Blanc, lower the importance of Auxerrois and bring more complexity through the influence of a great limestone vineyard. In 2011, these grapes were more fertile than usual, probably a consequence of the small 2010 crop, so the Auxerrois is slightly more important in proportion. The 2011 crop was healthy, had a good ripeness and fermented lazily without being able to go right to the end, so the wine kept a little sweetness.
