2015 Blanc de Noir (still) (Hillinger)

Hillinger, Blanc de Noir, Burgenland, Austria 2015

{organic} 100% Pinot Noir

WHITE PLUM & QUINCE, DELICATELY EARTHY HONEY, BRIGHT ACIDITY

While the term, “Blanc de Noir,” is typically reserved for sparkling white wines made from red grapes, its application to still wine, like this one from the masterful mavericks of Burgenland’s Hillinger, is not unprecedented. On the one hand, this interesting white is almost as aerodynamic and contemporary as the “ICON HILL" bottle commissioned by the estate from futuristic visionary architect, Zaha Hadid, but there’s an ethereally earthy subtext interwoven in like mist through an Austrian forest – a delicious collision of old and new.

Serving Suggestion: Lightly-breaded char (or salmon...or trout) w/ parsley, white pepper, & tarragon. Herb-crusted chèvre & balsamic beet/arugula salad.
