Konigschaffhausen Blanc de Noirs 2020
A dry still white wine. Pinot Noir grown in the volcanic soils of the famous Kaiserstuhl in the South of Baden. Fermented in stainless steel and aged on the fine lees before being bottled with a hint of residual sugar. Good acidity. A dry, fruity and floral Blanc de Noirs. Fun!
The Winzergenossenschaft Konigschaffhausen (Wine Cooperative) dates from 1933, and has recently begun an affiliation with the grower's co-op in neighboring Kichlinsbergen. The Winzergenossenschaft has a current membership of some 370 growers, who together cultivate some 204 hectares of vines. Under the leadership of Gunter Zimmerman and Harald Henninger, growers are extremely conscious of the need for yield-reduction, and for delivering first-class fruit to the winery. The winery in Endingen is capable of vinifying juice in various styles, depending on variety and ripeness, outfitted with the best and latest of modern technology, along with the old-fashioned traditional equipment.
