Rheinhessen: Jürgen Hofmann Weisser Burgunder Trocken - Yapp Brothers One Minute Review

Grant Berry reviews the Weisser Burgunder from Jurgen Hoffmann. Commonly known as Pinot Blanc, this wine has wonderful melon and pear aromas, a silky texture with hints of citrus, and a herby mineral finish. Would match with fish or buttery sauces.
