About Domaine Weinbach
Domaine Weinbach was established in 1610 by the Capuchin monks who also gave their name to the domaine's most prized vineyard, Clos des Capucins. The estate itself got the name Weinbach--which literally translates to "wine brook"--from a little stream that trickles through the property.

Bright yellow-gold. Captivating aromas of spicy apple pie, dried apricot, caramelized kumquat, marzipan and sexy botrytis on the very pure, penetrating nose. Extremely fresh and clean, with harmonious acidity lifting the ripe tropical fruit, cinnamon-spiced apple and passion fruit flavors. This massively concentrated wine manages to stay unbelievably graceful and balanced despite its huge richness. Its extremely persistent lingering flavor of baked cinnamon apple and mouthwatering acidity are unforgettable. I can best describe this wine by telling you it's very much like a eating a liquid tarte tatin. Get a load of these numbers: 221 g/l residual sugar, 10.6 g/l total acidity, 3.4 pH and only 9.5% alcohol.
