Weingut Von Winning Weissburgunder II, 2017/8, Pfalz, Germany
£29.75 (inc VAT)
A.K.A. Pinot Blanc. Ripe quince, fresh pear and apricot. We go nutty for this.
Sourced from a selection of Von Winning's best vineyards in and around Deidesheim. This slightly off-dry little tipple is as deep as the Mariana Trench and as addictive as the chocolate you have hidden from yourself in the deepest depths of your kitchen cupboard.
Humble heroes. From their intriguing (and award-winning) Rieslings to their groundbreaking Pinot Noirs, we love every wine and winemaker from this family-run estate. Founded in 1849 by Dr. Deinhard, developed by his son-in-law Leopold von Winning in 1907, the estate was revived in 2007 by Achim Niederberger, together with the Bassermann-Jordan and von Buhl properties. Tragically Herr Niederberger died in 2013, and his wife Jana now steers the ship. No herbicides, no synthetic fertilisers, no copper, no filtering and no fining. Every bottle is a winner.
