Zind Humbrecht, Riesling Clos Hauserer 2009, Alsace

White peach, mirabelle, and quince with their pits and pips seem to be shadowed by their distilled essences and are saturated with brine and oyster shell. Lusciously juicy and exhilaratingly dynamic in its finishing fruit-mineral interaction, this mouth-watering Riesling ought to be experienced in its youth, but will almost certainly also bear following for 12-15 years. The low-acidity of the vintage is not felt at all, except to the extent that - as with this year's Goldert Muscat as well - 15 grams of residual sugar proves sufficient to result in noticeable though deliciously-integrated sweetness.
