EICH 2016 Weissburgunder
A nice pinot blanc from Alto Adige.
Weingut Kornell - EICH 2016 Weissburgunder (87 tsomw points)
Bright light yellow color in the glass.
For a Weissburgunder this one surprised me by the intense, fruity aromas of ripe apples, blossoms, pears and candied cherries with some spicyness.
On the palate dry, spicy with lively freshness,juicy fruit, nice minerality and a long and persistent finish.
