Product Description

Weingut Ch. W. Bernhard (Ch. W. is shorthand for Christian Wilhelm), a 600 year-old family estate located in the town of Frei-Laubersheim, some 40 miles to the southwest of Frankfurt, is nominally in the Rheinhessen region but its soils bear more resemblance to the Nahe region, which is just over the hill. Hartmut Bernhard, the current proprietor, is an instinctive wine-grower and maker. He knows exactly what he is doing without intellectualizing it.

The Ch. W. Bernhard 2010 Hackenheimer Kirchberg Weissburgunder Spatlese Halbtrocken has a long name that might need some explanation to make sense of all the words. Ch. W. Bernhard is the winery's name. Hackenheimer means the vineyard is located within the town of Hackenheim, a town just to the north of the winery's home of Frei-Laubersheim. Kirchberg is the vineyard's name. Weissburgunder is the German word for Pinot Blanc. Spatlese is one of several terms that defines the ripeness of the grapes at harvest, and in this case refers to grapes that are fully ripe, just slightly less than the typical "Late Harvest." Halbtrocken means the final wine is "off dry."

The lively, fresh, flowery nose of this succulent Pinot Blanc belies the creamy richness of the palate with its flavors of peach and apricot, discreet sweetness, and faint hint of botrytis. This well-balanced wine is an excellent choice for white meat with creamy sauces.
