Tiefenbrunner Anna Weissburgunder 2020

The Tiefenbrunner winery is located in a picturesque 12th century castle. Here the Tiefenbrunner family has been crafting crisp, balanced wines for 6 generations. This wine is dedicated to Sabine and Christof’s daughter Anna, the first member of the sixth generation.

Wine Production

Following temperature-controlled fermentation, 50 % of the wine is aged for seven months in large oak casks on the fine lees, with regular stirring. The other 50 % is fermented in stainless steel tanks and also matures for seven months on the fine lees.

Tasting Notes

This wine is medium gold in color with lemon-green highlights and a broad array of aromas that includes ripe yellow apples, white flowers, citrus, and hazelnuts. On the palate, the wine is dry and crisp with a long, clean finish.

Food Pairing

This wine would be a great match for a classic dish like Sole Meunière or, for a more light-hearted pairing, with a picnic lunch of chicken salad on fresh ciabatta bread.
