Pinot blanc 2017
- Wine variety:
- Sugar content:
Dry wine from the Maliny vineyard site, a full-bodied varietal wine with a yeasty aroma and an added “crema” flavour element. The finish has notes of buttery pear. The wine has been aged sur lie (with fine sediment), producing the mentioned creaminess. This fine lees gives the wine a different character. Another advantage of this method is the creation of a reductive environment, which means the wine needs almost no sulphur since it is not subject to oxidation, and so it contains a minimum of sulphur.
Sugar content at harvest 21.4°NM, alcohol 12.5% vol., residual sugar 6.1 g, acids 5.5 g.
