Molenberg Prestige

White wine

The Molenberg Prestige 2019 is made from Pinot Gris, Pinot Auxerrois and Chardonnay from the oldest vines and contains 12% alcohol. The wine is raised for 18 months in oak barrels, half of which are new oak. This ensures a gastronomic, fine oak tone. The Molenberg Prestige was only made in limited quantities, and can still mature for a few years in the cellar.
