An outstanding expression of Pinot Blanc that gets better with age
Burgundian style richness but with a freshness and minerality rarely seen to this level in the Cote D'Or

Vollmondwein means "Full Moon Wine"

Late harvest on a full moon. It's so good it might just make you believe in the power of a full moon. No, it's no werewolf, more the peace and harmony of a summer night under the full moon - perhaps on the hills above Vienna watching the city lights below. This is a very skillful wine - pear, apples, warm granite and toasted hazelnuts and a lovely hint of a well-used tea caddy. Full bodied but with excellent acidity. This is Pinot Blanc with real class, not just another nice wine but one that shows a careful and loving winemaker.
