Weissburgunder, or Pinot Blanc, call it what you want: what matters is just how good this wine is. Dry, fresh and brilliantly textured with excellent fruit, leaning towards the stonefruit and peach flavours, and a crisp mineral finish.
Winzerhof Stahl is a dynamic young estate from one of Germany’s rising star winemakers, Christian Stahl. Christian has been making waves on the national and international wine scene since he established the estate in 2005, winning multiple accolades across the world in recognition of his talent and contribution to the world of wine.
Based in Franken, in Bavaria, Stahl makes wines in a region with a long and fruitful viticultural history, spanning over 1200 years. The Main River runs through the verdant countryside, where small villages of cobblestone paving and timber-framed houses dot the landscape. Auernhofen, where Winzerhof Stahl is situated, is one of these such villages. Over 15 years ago, Christian started the winery with 1.5 hectares that he inherited from his family farm. A passion project, fronted by an ambitious Christian, who proudly owns over 40 hectares today. Along the hillside banks of the Tauber, Main, and Steigerwald rivers, their low-yielding vineyards face south and southwest, on a base of limestone and clayey marl soils.
With a firm commitment to sustainability, the winery is run using solar energy from solar panels, for heating they use firewood taken from the property's forest, and natural spring water for all cleaning purposes comes from the winery's well. Manual harvesting and a rigorous selection of fruit are followed by fermentation using natural yeasts, long lees contact, and a reductive winemaking process throughout.
