Weissburgunder Maximum 2019
We have a long tradition with Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc). Dr. Bruno Hiedler was the first vintner to plant the variety in the Danube region in 1955, a time when small grapes were anything but 'en vogue'. The grapes for our Maximum are sourced from exactly this historic vineyard, with interesting & old vine genetics. The old vines grow at the foot of the Schenkenbichl slope, on river gravel which in places is criss-crossed with bright, lime-rich loess. Before bottling, it matures for two full winters in large acacia casks on the lees. This is how this dense and elegant Weissburgunder is created, with the unmistakable Hiedler signature.

Vinification
From 65 years old vines. The grapes were selectively harvested by hand in mid-October. In the cellar they were slightly crushed. After some hours of maceration they were gently pressed off with low pressure. Fermented in big acacia cask and matured for several months in cask on the lees. Bottled at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in June 2021.
