STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The winery is a family run estate situated in Gols, Burgenland in north east Austria and consists of 15 hectares of biodynamically tended vines, most of which are situated at the Wagram of the Parndorfer Platte, generally considered to be the best site in the region. The estate is run by Judith Beck who inherited the business from her father after having trained at Cos d'Estournel in France and Errazuriz in Chile. The grapes benefit from the proximity of Lake Neusiedi which acts as a natural storage heater, storing the warmth of the sunshine during the day and releasing it through the night. This 100% Weissburgunder (aka Pinot Blanc) is matured for 6 months in oak casks on the entire lees and is fragrant and refreshing.
A brilliant pale gold-yellow in the glass. An aromatic nose of white peaches and pears. On the palate, ripe and rich yet elegant with a vibrant acidity and a touch of spice from the oak. The finish is lingering. This is a beautifully balanced and well structured wine which suggests good ageing potential.
