WHWC Staff Notes: "The Burkheimer Weissburgunder (100% Pinot Blanc) is unmistakably racy in both its aromas and flavors. The volcanic soils of the area give this wine a very high-toned bouquet of unripe white peach, orange zest, white pepper, and pear. Flavors of tart green apple and lemon are underpinned by a medium-weight palate with electric acidity and minerality. Pair this wine with ceviche, crudo, or any dish emphasizing clean, elegant flavors. In a land of sometimes esoteric and imposing wine styles, this is one of the friendliest white wines you could ask for, at a price that seems to defy its level of quality." -Andrew Kitz, 8/29/15

Importer notes: "The Kaiserstuhl can justifiably claim to be the single best-known district of Baden. Its volcanic soils and singularly warm climate give rise to powerful, vibrant Pinots of every type. Cousins Martin and Arne Bercher are the tenth generation of the family to run this highly-reputed estate... Bercher’s originality is to offer an education in the influence of volcanic soils (Burkheim) versus loess (Jechtingen). In 2013, we narrowly preferred the fervid pungency of Burkheim as it influenced the Pinot Blanc. This is an imposing, palpably mineral wine that nonetheless has plenty of flesh on its manly bones. Wines like this lend support to the notion that Austria has a serious rival to its claim to make the world’s best Pinots Blancs!"
