- Dom Weinbach Sylvaner Reserve 2013 Product #29085 (In Stock)
If you know Sylvaner at all, it’s probably as an overcropped, sweet and flabby component to bad German wine. But, plant Sylvaner on stony soils, grow it carefully, and keep the yields down, and you’ll get a vibrant wine with crisp fruit and plenty of dusty, leesy, mineral.
This is even better than that. It opens with classic Sylvaner aromas of crisp green apples, fresh rain water, wet river stone, and a touch of white flower. Give it a swirl and a touch of something exotic starts to peak out. Take a sip and you’ll feel the wine explode with loads of sweet apple and peach fruit with delicious grated ginger, smoked stone, and rose petal floral notes. It’s unusually rich and even dense for Sylvaner with an almost Gewürztraminer feel before closing with lightning focus and crisp acidity and minerality on the back. Fun to just sip before the meal, but also rich and powerful enough to enjoy with turkey and all the trimmings. An exciting wine.
