Details

Feherburgundi, Pinot Blanc, Franz Weninger, biodynamic wine, Pinot Blanc and a little Pinot Gris, delightfully fresh, clean and fruity white wine. Now should I have to limit myself to one single word, describing this wine, it would be freshness. Much of the fruit comes from Frettnerwhich lies on a North-West facing slope, with the Kohlenberger forest in the back. The shadow comes over the vineyard early in the late afternoon, the nights are cooler, and the fresh breeze from the Lake keeps the vineyard constantly aired. The chalky soils always made for the best terroirs to plant Pinot, Frettner is no exception. The remaining part of the blend comes from Steiner. Just a few kilometres south-east, but with no forest to balance the local micro-climate, it is much hotter with temperatures easily reaching over 40 degrees in the peak of the summer. The grapes come out golden, richer and broader in their aromatic profile. Citrus fruits, stone fruits, minerality, delicious mouthfeel. A lovely wine for seafood, soft, fruity cheeses or simple pasta dishes.

Franz Weninger comes from a lineage which dates back to the early 19th century in the town of Horitschon, Burgenland in southern Austria. Not long after the end of communist Hungary, Franz’s Father bought some parcels of vines in Balf, close to Sopron thought to be the best area for Kekfrankos (Blaufrankisch) in Hungary. The area lies in close proximity to lake Neusiedlersee which has a warming influence contrasted by cool winds which come down from the nearby mountains. This special climate makes for perfect ripening conditions for Kekfrankos.

Since 2006, the Wininger family have been working biodynamically which they see as essential for the best quality grapes and to fully realise the difference in terroir expressed in this sensitive grape variety. The soils in Sopron, Gneiss and Mica-schist yield a different style of wine to that in nearby Burgenland which is limestone, chalk, and clay. Their production in both Hungary and Austria is dominated by different expressions of Kekfrankos but they also plant Furmint, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, some international varieties and even produce a delicious natural cider. Their commitment to natural farming and quality wine is combined with outstanding value for money.
