Weinbach Pinot Blanc 2020

$68.00

Pinot Blanc from Weinbach is one of the world’s vinous treats. Like most Alsatian producers, Weinbach are synonymous with Riesling, but I must stress that this is utterly delightful. Soft and pure palate, with a touch of cream, savoury spice and juicy tropical fruits. Red apple and melon provide a lively frame, and you get the best of both worlds; pulpy fruit and the crisper version. Wonderful stuff. Waters Wine Co

Who could resist this succulent dry pinot blanc with tons of fresh-pineapple aroma, but also delicate garden-pea freshness. Good concentration on the medium body, the finish long and lively. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. 92 Points – JamesSuckling.com

In Alsace, the term ‘Pinot Blanc’ can be used to describe wines made from any or all of the following grapes: Pinot Blanc; Auxerrois; Pinot Gris; and Pinot Noir. Weinbach’s Pinot Blanc is a blend of 70% Auxerrois and just 30% Pinot Blanc.

Weinbach’s blend comes from both Clos des Capucins (with 45-year-old vines) and a plot from the limestone/clay soils at the foot of the Altenbourg vineyard. As with the dry Rieslings, the Pinot Blanc was whole-bunch pressed, and was fermented and raised over eight months in large-format wood (it was previously raised in tank).
