WTN: A Pinot Bianco that even Jenise should like...

Alois Lageder Pinot Bianco "Tòr Löwengang" Haberlehof 2005 12,5% 14,99€

I have usually appreciated Lageder to some degree (I guess for the purity of expression) but have also usually thought them to be a bit simple and frankly a bit boring. I don't know what they did differently with this wine, but this wasn't boring at all and had all that purity that I like. Extremely mineral nose, reminding me of Muscadet with its sea-breeze, rocks and limpid fruit, yet it still is typical PB in its appley flavours. It is obviously from a warm year because the acidity is a bit less zippy that I hoped, but there is enough acidity to keep the wine very fresh and to reign in the juicy fruit. Lovely, mineral aftertaste. I don't think I've ever been so excited by a Lageder. Now I need to get this in a cooler vintage to get the zippiness level to my liking.

Well well well. Actually, I've now liked two. One was Austrian and the other German, so I've officially lifted my pinot blanc ban on Europe though it remains in place for North America. :lol:

Jenise, good to hear! Sorry, I must have missed the notes, but which are the two that made you change your mind? (Always on the lookout for more minerally drinks....)
