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 since 2009.
Despite all the developments at the winery, one thing remains the same in her life as a vintner: the place and the soil in which her vines root and ripen their grapes. The schist, shell limestone, and crystalline quartz of the Leitha Mountains and the unique microclimate near Lake Neusiedl provide the wines of Purbach a special, natural ripeness and terror-specific minerality. The crisp, cool night air on the Leitha Mountain slopes lends Birgit Braunstein’s wines fruitiness, finesse, and vitality. It is with great joy and dedication that she follows her life’s calling. All her wines are naturally fermented and bottled unfined and unfiltered with small sulphur additions.
Lightly aromatic, with notes of pear, peach, almond, lemon zest and crushed rock. The palate is light with medium acidity and minerality. This wine makes an ideal companion delicate flavors and matches well with soft cheeses, salads with cream dressings and flaky fish.
The Pinot Blanc, also known as Pinot Bianco (Italy) and Weissburgunder (Germany), has been known since the 14th century. It is one of the Burgundy varieties and originally comes from a mutation of the Pinot Gris. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel with six months resting in the fine lees.
