Hoepler PINOT BLANC 2021

Pinot Blanc 2021

Dry | 0.75L

Pinot Blanc or Weissbugunder (in German) has been described as the ‘Cinderella of the Pinot Family’. Slightly overlooked and sometimes mistaken for Chardonnay, it is a mutation of the Pinot Noir grape and like its relative is particular about where it grows. Fortunately, it is at home rooted deep into our limestone soils and ripening in the warmth of our micro climate by the lake. This enables a long hang time with late picking to ensure optimal healthy ripeness. We Austrians love this grape and produce a wine of fresh, fruity finesse that develops more complexity with age. A style similar to our more famous friends from the Alto Adige.
