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

Mineral on entry then filled with green tea character supported by bright acids, this remains relatively round in style with earthy, slightly oxidative flavors that are savory and honeycomb tinged. There is a nice round feel here and attracti... Read More
