(two-thirds pinot auxerrois): Bright, pale straw. Beeswax and white flowers on the nose. Nicely concentrated and balanced on the palate, with notes of honey, butter and spices complicating the ripe stone fruits. Finishes clean and persistent. You can tell there's quite a bit of auxerrois here due to the wine's spicy, rich character. The grapes are a 50/50 blend of Rotenberg and Herrenweg fruit; most of the pinot blanc comes from the Herrenweg, which ripens a bit quicker, while Rotenberg provides the auxerrois.
