Munzberg Weissburgunder Brut NV
Superb value, fruity easy drinking
Country of origin | Germany
Grape Variety | Pinot Blanc
Medium bodied, medium acidity, easy drinking with freshness
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
Cool, tart nose, with aromas of herbs, delicate flora, citrus and pomaceous fruit and prominent yeasty notes. Ripe, juicy and persistent with good mousse and a light grip. Very good indeed and an excellent alternative to more readily accessible sparkling on the market.
