The Wine: Burgunder SA NV
Der Rebenhof Burgunder SA NV is a white natural wine made from a blend of certified biodynamic Pinot Gris (33.3%), Pinot Blanc (33.3%), and Chardonnay (33.3%) grapes grown in Southern Styria, Austria.
Importer's notes: Burgunder SA is a blend of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay from 5 vintages (2010-2014). The grapes from 20-40 year old vines were grown on sandstone, gravel and calcareous marl soils. Aromas of caramelized grilled orange with fresh grated ginger. Drinks beautifully like honeyed ginger lemon tea. Leaves your mouth watering with a savory herbal finish. Easy drinking, but a complex white wine that deserves contemplation.
