Weissburgunder Langenlois 2018
Every wine village is unique in terms of location, elevation and geology. An Ortswein (Village Wine) reflects this geological and microclimatic spectrum. Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) has a long tradition in our estate. Dr. Bruno Hiedler was the first winemaker to cultivate the variety in the Danube area in 1955. It was a time when small grapes with low yields were anything but 'en vogue'. Since then, Weissburgunder is deeply rooted in our soils and our history. This balanced and elegant Weißburgunder grows on calcareous loess and gravel soils around the historic town Langenlois. They characterize its calm fruit and nutty spiciness.
