2019 Dreissigacker Weißburgunder "Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten"

Tasting note

2019 Weingut Dreissigacker Weißburgunder Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten

A dry Pinot Blanc from the Dreissigacker winery, made for the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg. We bought this bottle there about a year ago and opened it today.

The colour is a pale light yellow. On the nose, fresh fruity notes of green apple and grapefruit. In addition, caramel and green herbs. The first impression is balanced. This Pinot Blanc is full-bodied with a creamy melt and crisp acidity. Then on the palate, the taste of grapefruit juice, sour and a bit bitter, again with herbal notes. Not surprising and probably “typical of the variety”. On the finish, however, the wine is a bit impetuous and slightly alcoholic for my taste.

On the nose, this Pinot Blanc edition from Dreissigacker for the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten undoubtedly promised more than it could deliver on the palate. Overall, certainly okay as a versatile food companion, but nothing special for wine lovers.

Drink through 2025.
