Tasting Notes

An intense expression of citrus, apple, ginger and hints of spice, with some apricot in the background. Rich, perfumed attack, with apricot, and citrus flavors, perfectly balanced by high acidity acidity and hints of sweetness.

Cool to moderate continental climate

Domaine Zinck

The soils and terroirs of Alsace are a winemaker’s dream as there is a different soil composition in every single plots of every vineyard. Alsace is a complex mosaic with different soils, subsoils, and bedrocks, being the result of its location on a geological fault. Alsace vineyards sits in a hole between the Vosges and the Black Forest. If we can generalize, the subsoil in Alsace can be marly, slightly granitic, volcanic, sandy, calcareous, or even very stony clay.
