- Dom Weinbach Riesling Reserve Personnelle 2011 Product #26420 (In Stock)
Always one of the best dry Riesling values to come out of Alsace, the 2011 edition offers all the complexity and refreshment of the Wine Spectator 90 point 2010 release in a more open, ready to love, package. The cool 2011 growing season in Alsace was saved by a warm Indian summer that allowed growers to wait to harvest when their fruit was perfectly ripe. In this – the estate’s “entry level” Riesling – you’ll find that lovely ripeness from first sniff where aromas of peach, yellow pear, lime zest, grapefruit pith, and salty wet stones jump from the glass.
In the mouth, it’s a touch more open than the 2010 was at this point, with layered and lovely flavors of orchard and citrus fruits accented by notes of almond and warm stones. So fresh in the mouth, it reminded me of biting into a sweet and juicy wine grape, with zesty acidity and a smoky, stony, edge keeping things fresh on the long, mouthwatering, finish.
- Dom Weinbach Sylvaner Reserve 2011 Product #26422 (In Stock)
Biodynamic One of the most overlooked wines in Alsace, this shows off how delicious Sylvaner can be when grown well. The aromas show off crisp apple, orange zest, apricot, brine and stone notes. Bright and zesty in the mouth where a hint of honeysuckle and white pepper emerges and the finish explodes with mouthwatering citrus. Delicious and drinking well right now.
