From a family that has worked the earth and the vines at Eguisheim for several generations, Paul Zinck created the Zinck Winery in 1964. He started with 2.5 hectares of vines.
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 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 Crí_Œ©mant of Alsace, and special mentions for the vendanges tardives and grains nobles.
The rich earth -- silt, chalky with clay-silt and volcanic ash allows cultivation of all the Alsatian varietals, including Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer, on 60% of the winery's growing; the Alsatian Crí_emant and the Grands Crus represent respectively 10% and 20% of the total surface area.
The aroma is deep, slightly smoky and complex with an intense and quite full-bodied palate of peach and melon balanced by a zap of minerality, all characteristics of the best limestone vineyards around the town of Eguisheim. Stunning acidity to this vintage.
