Hanewald-Schwerdt Weissburgunder, Pflaz, Germany
Citrus & stone fruits with nuances of melons and herbs. Silky, lively with nice acidity.
The family owned and operated estate Hanewald-Schwerdt was founded in 1955 in Leistadt. Today Thomas Hanewald & Stephan Schwerdt took over the family business which was established by their grandfather. The two cousins focus on Riesling and Pinot Noir. Pinot Blanc is the second most important white variety.
The secret of their handcrafted wines is a unique lime-stone reef which dominates all the sites around Leistadt. A hidden treasure away off the beaten track. The vines are old and surrounded by a protected natural resort in the shade of the Haardt mountains.
