Tasting Note:

More concentrated, deep and generous than the standard Pinot Reserve, with velvety soft tannins and succulent fruit. The generous, rather warm 2015 vintage was a blessing for the reds, providing the conditions for the grapes to properly ripen in this generally cool climate. Where many Alsace Pinots are pale and frankly rather hollow, Weinbach’s Cuvee W is the product of the lowest yielding, most concentrated fruit on the estate; essential if the goal is to achieve full phenolic ripeness and attractive, silky fruit. Ripe red cherry, forest fruit, strawberry leaf and redcurrant flavours are better defined and more substantial than ever this year, supported by fine, elegant tannins that produces a quality Pinot Noir of surprising stature. The best Pinot yet from this old and noble estate. Fermented in large oak vats and aged in a combination of barrique and traditional Alsatian oak casks for approximately twelve months.
