Playful, fine and mineral.
Pinot Blanc, called Weissburgunder in German, has been known since the 14th century. It counts among the Burgundian varieties and stems from a mutation of Pinot Gris (Grauburgunder). The pale-skinned variety yields light wines with mild, well-integrated acidity. Best drinking enjoyment on the summer terrace served at 8-10 ° C (46-50 °F). Pairs well with a fresh herb salad with avocado and crayfish; fabulous with grilled asparagus in chervil butter.
Crisp, peppery and full of fresh berry flavour
The Blaufränkisch Heide has a fresh and fruity flavour reminiscent of blackberry and pepper. It is powerful and concentrated, but remains supple on the palate. Optimal drinking temperature is 16-18 °C (60-64 °F). Ideal accompaniment to duck breast roasted under a walnut crust with sauteéed schupfnudeln (small potato dumplings). It is also a superb choice with spicy hard cheeses like Gryerzer with freshly baked pumpkin seed bread.
