"This Vendange Tardive originates mostly from the Schnekelsbourg section on the east side of Brand Grand Cru Vineyard. Here, there is a layer of marl and calcareous deposit deep enough that it can only be reached by old vines. The Brand/Schnekelsbourg is often slightly more powerful and develops more noble rot while maintaining the capacity to retain strong acidity. Zind-Humbrecht's dedication to terroir expression guides all winemaking practices, which include extended pressing cycles, abbreviated clarification cycles (to retain natural yeasts and proteins in the must), natural malolactic fermentation and extended aging on the lees. The wine is aged 24-36 months in 40-year-old French barrels."-Supplier notes
