The grapes for this Pinot Blanc wine were harvested in the estate’s two wholly-owned vineyards, the Serriger Herrenberg and Serriger Würtzberg. Both vineyards are classified as Große Lage and are two of the most spectacular sites the Saar valley has to offer, with their really steep slopes of red and blue slate and perfect southern aspect.
The Pinot Blanc vines themselves are actually planted in what is the oldest vineyard in the Saar valley and the thin, rocky slate soil gives the grapes a truly distinctive taste because it’s unusual for Pinot Blanc vines to be grown on slate soil.
The wine was spontaneously fermented in a steel tank and in large wooden barrels.
The 2016 harvest was characterised by perfectly ripe and healthy grapes, so this Pinot Blanc developed a particularly aromatic fruitiness of white peach and luscious pears with a creamy finish.
