Leon Beyer, Pinot Blanc, 2011 - wine, the taste and aroma which is lurking set of clear fruit tones. In addition, it is extremely fresh. Wine made from Pinot Blanc. The key factors in creating a successful vintage 2011 was the weather that influenced the development of excellent grapes. The winter was very cold and harsh. Spring - a little dry and warmer than usual. Kidneys began to open in April, earlier than usual, for 2 weeks. Dry, sunny and hot weather in May accelerated flowering vine for two to three weeks. Early June, surprisingly, was cool. In general, the rest of the summer was warm, with plenty of rainfall. The important role played by the wind, which has protected the grapes from rot and mildew. All these conditions contributed to the development and concentration of grape from which, in the future, winery Leon Beyer was made excellent wine.
