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