2017 Weissburgunder Trocken, Selbach-Oster, Mosel, Germany

Description

This wine is a bin-end, discounted by 20%.

This is a gloriously food friendly and versatile wine made from the lesser known German variety: Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc). Just eight barrels were produced by this family-run estate. Aromas of grapefruit peel, lemon and honeysuckle lead on to a pithy and textured palate, with racy acidity providing a refreshing and crisp finish. This would pair with even the trickiest of dishes like asparagus, as well as rich poultry-based dishes. Ready to drink now.

About this WINE

Selbach-Oster

Selbach-Oster

Selbachs have been cultivating Riesling vines in the Mosel since 1661. Today Johannes Selbach and his wife Barbara run the Estate which is now one of the leading producers in the Mittel Mosel. There are 10.6 hectares of vineyards including holdings in Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, and Graacher Dowmprobst. The grapes are hand picked and then fermented in traditional in large oak barrels. The emphasis here is on finesse and purity of fruit with supremely elegant Kabinett and Spatlese wines as well as powerful and more concentrated Auslese wines.

Pinot Blanc

Pinot Blanc

A white grape which is grown in Alsace, where it is sometimes referred to as Clevner or Klevner, and in Germany and Austria, where it is known as Weisseburgunder. In Italy it is called Pinot Bianco and is planted widely in Friuli-Venezia, the Alto Adige and the Veneto.

It is the workhorse grape of Alsace, where it is used to make varietal Pinot Blanc, is part of the blend for Edelzwicker, and is increasingly the main component of Cremant d`Alsace. It lacks the aromatic qualities of other Alsatian grape varieties and may not be used for the production of Grand Cru or late harvest wines.

At its best it produces light to medium-bodied, crisp dry white wines with hints of apples, honey and yeast and a refreshingly pure and clean finish. It normally sees no oak, though in the Alto Adige it is often fermented and matured in oak barrels.
