Winemaker's Notes

ELEGANCE: delicate Burgundian bouquet, elegant fruit, mineral structure, multi-layered

"The 2006 Weissburgunder represents an opulent rendition of this variety that positively drips with hazelnut paste, apple jelly, and lemon cream. The alcohol had already passed 14% when Schrock decided to arrest the yeasts and fermentation, leaving nine grams of residual sugar. The texture is very creamy, glycerin-rich, and marked by the lees (which no doubt play a role in buffering the alcohol as well). And yet, despite all that, this wine manages to offer some invigoration and juiciness, thanks to a core of fresh apple and musk melon, a briny, saline note, and a remarkable clarity that comes from perfectly ripe (okay, overripe, but still blemish-free) berries. Even as this warms up in the glass, it preserves its purity. It may prove a bit less versatile at table than in other vintages, but I suspect one could hold on to this for 3-5 years and experience an interesting show."
