It was in 1898 that the Faller family acquired the estate and runs it to this day. With their eyes set on the pursuit of perfection, yet never losing sight of nature, the goal is to create wines which represent an ideal union between the grape and terroir. A minimal approach is adhered to in the winery, where after a long fermentation the juice is moved to large neutral barrels, permitting each wine to maintain its individual stamp of minerality and pure fruit flavors. With holdings in Grands Crus throughout Alsace, Weinbach produces a lineup of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris which are considered the apex of Alsatian winemaking. The wines are powerful and bold, yet elegant, showing massive concentration with a dramatic streak of acidity. ✦ in Pursuit of PerfeCtion DOMAINE WEINBACH bottle Riesling Cuvee Theo 2012 (1401005) $33 Riesling Cuvee Ste Catherine 2012 (1401007) $38 Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg 2012 (1401006) $38 Pinot Gris Cuvee Ste Catherine 2012 (1406005) $45 Gewurztraminer Cuvee Laurence 2012 (1403009) $45 Gewurztraminer Altenbourg 2011 (1403000) $40 Pinot Gris Altembourg 2011 (1406003) $40 Pinot Gris Altenbourg 2012 (1406006) $50 Gewurztraminer Altenbourg 2012 (1403010) $50 Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg Cuvee Ste Catherine 2012 (1401008) $50 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Furstentum 2012 (1403011) $59 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Mambourg 2012 (1403013) $59 Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg Cuvee Ste Catherine L'Inedit 2012 (1401009) $64 When most people think of Alsace, the frst thing to come to mind are the iconic and exceedingly expensive Rieslings from Trimbach.
