Schafer-Frohlich Weisser Burgunder Trocken 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

WHWC Staff Notes: This overachieving Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder) is a multi-dimensional chameleon of a wine. The aromatic profile is endowed with unctuous tropical fruits and white flowers, with slight nuances of white pepper. Given the fruit profile, one would expect a weighty viscosity on the palate, but the wine proves to be incredibly lively and nearly weightless on both the entry and finish. The mid-palate displays a brief rush of glycerol from the ripeness of the fruit, bolstered by well-hidden but present acidity. The balance on this wine is exceptional, and the palate is just understated enough to suggest that another 3 to 4 years of evolution would bring out its full character. -Andrew Kitz, 11/3/15
