Quick Facts

Weissburgunder Juwel is the perfect wine by-the-glass, as it's refreshing yet provides mid-palate intensity and texture as well. Juliane Eller aims for a style echoing her other wines, rather than trying to duplicate Alsace, and we think that's a very clever choice.

The Wine’s Story

Pretty rare on the Swedish market to find Pinot Blanc unless coming from Alsace, but fact remains that Germany does produce some interesting versions too. It does require low yields in order to actually taste much, and Juliane Eller’s version is precisely what you’ve all been missing.

It’s fat texture on the mid-palate is the perfect counterpart to its juicy green apple flavors, and we like the spiciness on the finish too. We’re aware that selling German Weissburgunder won’t get us rich, but hell ya, it’s great fun nonetheless.
