AWC 2018 - Gold for Höpler Pinot Blanc 2017 & Höpler Blaufränkisch Leithaberg DAC 2015
Hoepler Pinot Blanc 2017 and Hoepler Blaufraenkisch Leithaberg DAC 2015 have both won Gold at the 2018 Austrian International Wine Challenge.
The Pinot Blanc 2017 is fresh and mineral, with aromas of exotic fruit and a slight zesty finish. It pairs beautifully with chicken dishes and fresh spices such as ginger and lemongrass. This vintage is the first vintage partly produced from grapes from a newly planted vineyard and we are excited to see how this vineyard develops over the coming years. It has certainly made a good start!
Blaufränkisch Leithaberg DAC 2015 – this has an intense dark ruby colour, with aromas of blackberries and spice. It has a long fruit driven finish and can be paired with rich grilled foods and fattier roast dishes too.
