A refined crisp Burgundy-style Pinot Blanc, single vineyard selection, very dry and partially matured in barriques - an ideal companion for spicy fish dishes.

Single Vineyard KIRCHBERG (“Church Hill”)

The Castell Kirchberg is a slope of up to 20% incline exposed to south-west. The soil consists of Gipskeuper, streaked with alabaster. Curiously, some of this very alabaster from this vineyard was used for the construction of the altar of the county church  (built in 1788).


Pinot Blanc is the brightest of all Pinot varietals, and is known since the 14th century. It is likely developed by a mutation of Pinot Gris, which in turn evolved from the Pinot Noir. A relatively new grape varietal in Castell winery.


Grapes were selectively hand-picked on 24th October 2013 at 96° Oechsle, temperature-controlled
fermentation at 17°C, five months left on the yeast, 10% of the wine is matured in barriques
