Tasting Notes

The story

The winery told me in 2017 that they have started labelling this wine as Pinot Bianco so that people expect a dry, Italian white wine, Weissburgunder being the German name for Pinot Bianco or Pinot Blanc.

The wine

I am still quite blown away by this wine; it just seems to get better and better. If you don't like oaked whites, you will love this wine which is both amazingly fresh and yet complex in character.

The aromas on the nose are very light, as you would expect from a Pinot Bianco/ Pinot Blanc but hint at the complex nature of the wine - subtle apple and pear bouquets with hints of lime. Ripe pears and Granny Smith apples are obvious on the palate; the long finish sees lime kicking in at the end which with the crisp acidity gives it a very fresh character, yet with a silky smooth mouthfeel. A delicious crisp wine which is great to drink on its own but complements seafood and fish dishes especially.

We also have 3 bottles of Erste & Neue Weissburgunder Sudtirol Alto Adige DOC 2013.

Food Pairing

This makes for a lovely aperitif and is recommended for drinking with fish and chicken, cheese, charcuterie and rich cheese dishes.

Producer's Notes

Bright straw yellow with greenish reflexes. Very fine bouquet, soft notes of apple dominate. Very straightforward on the palate with an elegant freshness and minerality and fine structure.


Winner of an Oscar for quality/ price in the Berebene Gambero Rosso 2016 guide

"Creamy and crisp, this lovely wine is delicately scented with yellow apple and mineral. The flavors carry over to the linear, elegant palate along with a note of pear while vibrant acidity lends plenty of verve".


A Pinot Blanc with real character, complex yet amazingly fresh; subtle apple and pear bouquet with hints of lime. Lovely and velvety in the mouth with a long dry lime finish
