Aromas of delicate, fresh white blos-soms give way to elderflower then lemon pith over freshly cut green apple. A flourish of citrus rises and subsides as pine notes from the cool forest floor emerge clean and true. The mouthfeel is brimming with a rounded warmth that is all-enveloping. Sunshine dipped in pine trees and kissed by ocean spray as salty caramel flavours drive everything to a deeply delicious finish. A warm afterglow lingers for minutes. Sensual and deeply heartwarming. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel and matured in 500 liter barrels for 18 months. The Pinot Blanc in Ried Haidsatz is nearly 50 years old but its producing beautiful, immaculate fruit. If you can, store a few cases away because this will be even better after 2025.
