“Domaine Weinbach is arguably one of the world’s greatest wine estates. Over the years, the Faller family has produced myriad fantastic wines that are sought by wine lovers and collectors everywhere. That consistent track record has shed light on Alsace’s many delicious, age-worthy and memorable white wines. Quality is so high across the board at Weinbach that it is hard to choose a single “best” wine as the subject of a vertical tasting.”
Ian D’Agata, Vinous.
The "MV0" (Macération Vogelgarten, Zero-Input). "Biodynamic in conversion. Weinbach’s striking skin contact release is drawn from a parcel of vines in the Vogelgarten vineyard (the bird’s garden) between the Grand Crus of Furstentum and Mambourg. It’s a blend of 70% Gewürztraminer and 30% Pinot Gris from an east-facing incline of marl and limestone. Here, the steep slope optimises exposure to the sun, producing the kind of opulent Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris—with great aromatic complexity—that Eddy Faller felt would suit a skin contact style right down to the ground. Following three weeks on skins with indigenous yeasts, it is aged for eight months on gross lees in foudre. There were no added sulphites at any stage."
