Weissburgunder Langenlois 2019
Every wine village is unique in terms of location, elevation and geology. An Ortswein (Village Wine) reflects this geological and microclimatic spectrum. Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) has a long tradition in our estate. Dr. Bruno Hiedler was the first winemaker to cultivate the variety in the Danube area in 1955. It was a time when small grapes with low yields were anything but 'en vogue'. Since then, Weissburgunder is deeply rooted in our soils and our history. This balanced and elegant Weißburgunder of old vine-genetics, grows on calcareous loess and gravel soils around the historic town Langenlois. They characterize its calm fruit and unique nutty-nes.

Selective harvest by hand in mid-September. Destemmed and crushed. Without sulphurisation of the juice. Gently pressed with low pressure. Fermented in stainless steel, with local Kamptal yeast. Later matured in acacia cask for several months on the fine lees. Bottled at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in April 2020.
Beautiful scent of almonds and pear, also acacia flowers, a little bit of lemon thyme and some quince coming through from the background; firm and smooth texture, elegant acidity, a fine mineral vein runs all the way into the beautiful finish where roasted hazelnuts, lemon and orange cake remain on the palate.
