Pinot Blanc "Vom Muschelkalk"

From old vines

Our Pinot Blanc “Vom Muschelkalk” grows on our highest vineyard in Gfill/Appiano Monte, 600 meters above sea level. In 2015, we purchased this vineyard cultivated with 60-year-old Pergola vines and produced our first single-vineyard wine in 2016.

The vineyard lies on a hillside at the foot of the Mendel Mountains and has deep porphyry subsoils with clayey sediments and gravelly alluvial soils containing lime and clay. Surprisingly, the very deep red clay soil features shell limestone slabs, which give our Pinot Blanc its name. The result is a very alpine, tense wine underlined by a profound acidity, freshness, and elegance. 

That’s Pinot Blanc too. Pure terroir.
