Weinbach Cuvee Colette, Alsace, Riesling, 2016

$43.55

Tasting Notes: Opens with a very candied nose. The wine is exceptionally ripe and varietal on the palate with white pepper, golden raisin, pineapple,  notes. There also is a nutty character with hazelnuts and rum raisin on the finish. This wine is absolutely delicious.

Wine Enthusiast 93/00: Pure tangerine on the nose continues as a juicy, aromatic flow onto the palate where more lemon notes unfold. The balanced, vivid freshness shines and makes the mouth water while a zesty, pleasantly bitter edge sets an aromatic counterpoint. The finish is dry and appealing.

Food Pairing: An ideal partner with fine fish and seafood, such as sea bass, halibut, sole, turbot, or scallops. Also beautiful with white meats and light preparations of poultry.

Description

About: At the foot of the majestic hill going by the name of Schlossberg, surrounded by vines and roses, lies Domaine Weinbach. Named after the little stream which runs through the property and planted with vines since the 9th century, it was established as a winery in 1612 by Capuchin friars. These vineyards surrounded by ancient walls, to this day, are specifically named Clos des Capucins. In addition to this, the estate?s history is well-remembered through the image of a monk, which fittingly adorns the labels. After being sold as national property during the French Revolution, it was acquired by the Faller brothers in 1898, who then left it to their son and nephew, Th?o. Th?o Faller was a prominent figure in Alsace winegrowing and an ardent defender of quality wine production. He developed, expanded, and enhanced Domaine Weinbach. After his death in 1979, his wife Colette, his daughters Catherine and Laurence, and their team continued the family?s passion for the great wines of Alsace and its unrelenting commitment to delivering excellence. Since 2016, Catherine has lead the estate winery with her sons, Eddy and Th?o.
