Heinrich Naked White, Burgenland, Austria, 2021 (750ml)
Naked and unadorned, this is a natural biodynamic white blend that hides nothing. Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Muskat-Ottonel, Pinot Gris are sourced from vineyards on both sides of Burgenland’s Lake Neusidel, rooted into limestone, schist, gravel soils. After a native ferment in stainless, this rested 14 months on lees in large, older oak before being bottled unfiltered with minimal sulphur. This opens with a wave of reduction before moving into a creamy, saline palate of pear and pear skin, grapefruit pith, broken stones to a clean finish. Quite an interesting Austrian rock juice.
Varietal: Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Muskat-Ottonel, Pinot Gris
