Wine Rudolf Furst, Burgstadter Berg Weiser Burgunder, 2018
The Weißburgunder Bürgstadter Berg from the Fürst winery is undoubtedly one of the best Pinot Blanc in Germany. In the nose, the wine exudes subtle wood and smoke notes, as well as a tart-vegetable scent. On the palate then exciting and complex.
White - Creamy, with soft acidity which develops nicely on the palate. Medium body.
a minerally lively, focused and juicy wine from a dry and hot year. this is reflected in a high intensity of pear cream, tangerine and orange notes in combination with a slightly tart stonyness as well as spice and a fine undertone of the wood. The palate is characterized by a voluminous fruit, which appears extremely juicy and yet also silky. There is a lot of power behind it, which is structured by the wood. The acidity is naturally ripe and gentle, but at the same time lively. There is the stoniness, combined with a hint of salt, tart herbal notes and a spice reminiscent of the shell of bitter oranges. As an overall composition, this is wonderfully balanced, harmonious and absolutely recommendable!
