Weinbach Cuvee Theo Riesling 2020


Tastes of luxury, according to Louise, and I have to agree. Feels luxurious too, with a long, slender frame woven by silken threads. Rich and almost full bodied, poised. Ripe fruit, yellow peach, guava, pawpaw, kiwifruit and cherry. Very fine feel and subtle texture, flecked with spice. Imperious and magnificent. Waters Wine Co

Exotic, rich, pungent nose with truly exciting fruit. Crunchy sensation and really deep flavours. Passion fruit flavours and creamy texture. Electric impact and no shortage of ripe fruit but a long, bone-dry finish. Great stuff. 17/20 – Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Cuvée Théo Riesling comes exclusively from the monopole Le Clos des Capucins (which takes its name from the Capuchin friars who arrived here in 1619), at the base of the celebrated Schlossberg hill. The Clos is well protected from winds by the surrounding hills and by the walls enclosing it. The soils consist of sand, alluvial pebbles and granitic gravel. Here the low-cropping vines typically offer up a supple and pithy Riesling that’s beautifully accessible young—a reflection of these sandy soils. As per all Weinbach Rieslings, this was whole-cluster pressed, fermented without any yeast additions and matured in very old oak casks for 10 months. Importer’s notes
