Purbach am Neusiedlersee
Birgit Braunstein’s family has been growing vines in Austria next to lake Neusiedl for 400 years. She works organically and biodynamically across a wide range of terroirs, her wines are elegant and balanced. She farms 22 hectares in the Burgenland, where she grows a range of Austrian and international varietals, following biodynamic principles. The soils are complex with gneiss, mica, slate, chalky limestone, marl and clay all to be found across her different vineyards. All wines are naturally fermented and bottled unfined and unfiltered with small sulphur additions.
This is a single vineyard Pinot Blanc grown on schist soil. The wine is fermented in open top fermenters with 21 days of maceration and rests for one year on the gross lees in used 500-litre barrels.
Pure flinty minerality. Subtle notes of marzipan, menthol, graphite, lemon verbena, white flowers, and ground hazelnut. Fully ripe and vibrant with a taut mineral structure and long finish.
