Weißburgunder

Also known as Pinot Blanc, this international variety is more familiarly known as Weißburgunder in Germany and Austria. Pinot Blanc is a late-ripening, thin-skinned, tight-clustered grape that does well with a variety of vinification techniques. Pinot Blanc generally has soft acidity, a delicate if not restrained bouquet and is often used as a blending partner to lighten heavier grapes. Pinot Blanc is very versatile can be vinified dry to sweet offering drinkers several ways to enjoy the grape. Within Austria, Pinot Blanc is classified under the Leithaberg DAC where it is grown in stony soils with little nutrients. In recent years, the grape has gained increased popularity. – Description from Constance Chamberlain

    Snoothrank:

    On the nose, notes of pear, apple and a slight bit of vanilla. On the palate, nice refreshing acidity with light, creamy and beautifully integrated minerality, which gives the wine a nice structure. Read More

  • Konzelmann Pinot Blanc-Weissburgunder 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Ah Pinot Blanc! All too rare and unassuming. It is said that Pinot Blanc is the party wine. In some respects that is true, since it can be seen as a safe white bet for the occasional wine drinker. Nevertheless, I appreciate that Konzelmann has taken on Pinot Blanc and succeeded in creating a rather fun and lengthy wine. This white wine is full ... Read More

    Tight on the nose with polleny notes and an undercurrent of honeycomb accenting dry heirloom apple fruit. Small and finely balanced with mouthwatering succulence on the palate. This turns zesty and salty on the mid-palate, packed with mineral notes and small apple fruits that drive across the finish and end with a pop of sweet fruit on the final... Read More

  • Rk" Weissburgunder Trocken Qualitätswein Von Mosel Saar Ruwer Weingut Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt 2009

    Snoothrank:

    One of the better Gewurz wines out there. If you find Moscato too sweet, try this Gewurtz. Not dry & sour like most Chards, yet not honey sweet like Meade. Light, refreshing, pink grapefruit comes to mind. Pair it up with green apple & white cheddar snaks - our guests loved it. Read More
