Domaine Weinbach 2018 Sylvaner, Alsace, France

Established in 1612, 100% Estate Grown. A dry, fresh, fruity, lively wine with very good body and personality. The grapes are sourced entirely from

the domaine’s estate vineyard, Clos de Capuchins.

Winemaker: Laurence Faller,  Ghislain Berthiot

Farming: Biodynamic (certified Demeter)

Variety: Sylvaner

Terroir: Older vines in our monopole Clos des Capucins vineyard, which is composed of sandy silt soil on granite

pebbles. The grapes growing in this terroir ripen much earlier, producing wines with complex aromatics

and a powerful concentration.

Vinification: Hand-picked at optimum maturity to reinforce the aromatic expression and body of the wines. Gently pressed in whole clusters in pneumatic presses then fermentation with indigenous yeasts (anelement of the terroir that enhances depth and complexity in the wines) in old oak vats.

Aging: 8-10 months in large old oak foudres

Tasting Note: This Sylvaner seduces with its herbal aromas of freshly mown grass and alum stone. Crisp, well structured, full-bodied, and perfectly balanced thanks to a juicy character and a ripe acidity. Very nice harmony and pure finish brought by a mineral freshness

Pairing: A vivid wine to pair harmoniously with vegetable starters and summer dishes. Also a pleasure to serve with mild cheeses, cured meats, and fish-based dishes.
