Weissburgunder Langenlois 2020
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.
