Domaine Zind-Humbrecht "Zind" Alsace White Blend 2016
Varietal: White Blend
Region: Alsace
Color: White
Country/State: France
92 Wine Spectator (12/15/2018) "This racy white crackles with acidity, offering an aromatic, flinty overtone to the flavors of nectarine, hazelnut, pomegranate and ground ginger. Features a long, mouthwatering finish. Chardonnay and Auxerrois. Drink now through 2026. 1,483 cases made, 192 cases imported."
92 James Suckling (5/28/2018) "Strikingly flinty, nutty with candied citrus on the nose. A lovely, sleek and elegant palate with just enough creaminess, giving this wine a polished texture. Bone-dry with a lively acidity, but it has quite a supple finish. Drink or hold. A blend of two-thirds chardonnay and one-third auxerrois from the Clos Windsbuhl site. Made from biodynamically grown grapes."
92 Decanter (5/14/2019) "An off-piste Alsatian wine made from Chardonnay and Auxerrois. This textured and distinctly mineral blend comes from the chalky soils of the cool, late-ripening Clos Windsbuhl vineyard in Hunawihr. It's fermented "wild" for up to 12 months in large oak foudres giving it immense body and lush tropical fruit notes. Lanolin, vanilla, limestone and a zippy lime-tinged acidity complete the picture. Biodynamic. Drinking Window: 2019 - 2022."
91 Wine Advocate (10/31/2018) "The bright citrus-yellow colored 2016 Zind blends 82% Chardonnay with 18% Auxerrois, both from the cool Clos Windsbuhl terroir where the vines root in rocky, magnesium-rich Muschelkalk (limestone) soils. From a generous crop of 65 hectoliters per hectare, with perfectly healthy grapes, this is Olivier Humbrecht's most Burgundian or even Champagne-styled wine: reductive, very clear, precise and fresh on the nose, with chalky-mineral, flinty/smoky and citrus-tinged notes. Fermented and aged in large oak for 16 months, this is a full-bodied yet pure, elegant, very tight, fresh and finessed wine with a pretty long, tensioned, salty-mineral and highly stimulating finish. Dry at 12.4% alcohol. Drink Date: 2020 - 2030."

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
