The Alsace region is a thin strip of steep hillside vineyards is located in northeast France. It is protected by the Vosges mountains to the west, Alsace is the driest region of France, a factor that compensates for the northerly location. Its wines were the first single varietals in France to be honoured with Appellation Controllée status 70 or more years ago. They are wines recognised for their rich aromatics and distinct character and are an ideal accompaniment with food
Located in Eguisheim, the cradle of Alsatian winemaking, Paul Zinck has established a special place in this region. This father and son due have found, in essense, a balance in winemaking, between traditional craftmanship and the contributions of new techniques. Since its founding in 1964, the winery has continually improved and modernized its equipment as well as the quality of its output, all the while remaining firmly committed to the values of a family business. Today, Paul Zinck produces quality wines whose character is enhanced by the pure vinification processs. In 2002 a new line of grand crus made its first appearance in a calatalogue already rich with its other ranges of wines. The young and dynamic winemaker, Philippe Zinck, has developed a modern approach to his family estate, using grapes selected from the best limestone vineyards around the town of Eguisheim, to give pure varietal character.
This dry Riesling comes from the steep `Rangen` vineyard, the most southerly of Alsace, and reflects the mineral rich siliceous rock in the soil. It yields intense lemon and mineral aromas, which linger on the palate. A wine of great finesse.
