Pinot Blanc, “Heideboden”
Nittnaus’ zesty Pinot Blanc comes from vineyards to the northeast of Lake Neusiedl, planted in the area’s sandy clay. Fermented spontaneously and aged ten months in stainless steel on its fine lees, the 2020 weighs in at 13% alcohol with a single invisible gram of residual sugar. Its vivid, lifted fruit speaks to its low-intervention origins, and it possesses a carefully calibrated generosity which stops well short of unctuousness.
About Anita & Hans Nittnaus
Nittnaus’ cellar practices serve to highlight the energetic and lovely character of their abundantly healthy fruit: they employ only spontaneous fermentations; and, for aging, they favor 500-liter Stockinger casks, whose tight-grained, low-toast, low-impact construction allows for maximal expressiveness and facilitates ultra-modest sulfur additions.Learn more
