  • Winemaker Notes Just a few kilometers southwest of Colmar, the Zinck winery is located in Eguisheim, one of the loveliest villages in Alsace. Sheltered by the Vosges Mountains, the climate is semi-continental, quite sunny, temperate and dry. The winery is now run by Phillipe and Pascale Zinck. The vineyards cover over 20 hectares and produce wines with labels guaranteeing the origin of the wine, AOC. These include AOC Alsace, AOC Grand Cru, AOC Crémant of Alsace, and special mentions for the late harvest and grains nobles. Pair with shellfish, fish fillets, grilled or oven, baked, raw or marinated fish, regional specialties, and goat cheese.
  • Tasting Notes Lifted notes of lemon zest and chamomile signal freshness and poise. The slender palate also stakes its reputation on lemony verve and achieves it in a light, refreshing way.
