A typical, finely-structured Burgundy-style wine from the Stigler estate from vines that grow on the volcanic soil at the south side of their Kaiserstuhl vineyard, the warmest vineyard spot in the whole of Germany. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and stored in large wooden barrels before bottling. Pale yellow in colour with lovely hints of green – clear and brilliant. The nose is fresh with delicate fruits, offering hints of peaches, apples and lychees, with medium acidity, the palate opens up quickly in the glass: a really solid example of this Baden star.
Pinot Blanc is one of the Alsace region’s most noble grape varieties. In fact, from another of Stigler’s vineyards, the Ihringen Winklerberg, you can clearly see the Vosges mountains in Alsace and Regina Stigler visits a bakery across the border in France on a Saturday morning to get her croissants – just an illustration of how near these noble regions are geographically.
