Domaine Weinbach Pinot Gris Cuvee Sainte Catherine 2019
- Pinot Gris
- White Wine
If you’ve never tasted a great Alsace pinot gris, here is the place to start! All the richness and creaminess we expect from this category, but married to lively acidity and pristine clarity. We love the super ripe pear bouquet with hints of exotic fruit and flowers. No perceptible tannins and still dry enough at the delicately spicy and mineral finish to be food-flexible. Drink or hold.
Domaine Weinbach is a leading wine estate in the Alsace region. It is named after the "wine brook", a small stream that runs through the main property, which is a former monastery near Kayserberg. Unusually for the region, Weinbach only uses estate-grown grapes. It has holdings in four nearby Grand Cru vineyards on the slopes of the Weisbach Valley, Schlossberg, Furstentum, Mambourg and Marckgrain. All of the estate's 28ha (69 acres) of vineyards have been farmed biodynamically since 2005 and are certified by Ecocert and Demeter.
