Additional Information

Alcohol: 11.4% Bottle size: 75cl Average age of vines: from new plantings to 30 years old. Winemaking is traditional and low intervention. The grapes undergo a short maceration followed by a long gentle pressing into large wooden barrels. Then they add some whole single berries which have been destemmed by hand. This helps start the fermentation and increases the structure of the Riesling. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts takes place in 1200 and 2400 litre barrels. The wine stays on full lees for one year allowing natural clarification. Clementine zest, green apple and some herbal characters on the nose. Juicy with refreshing acidity, apricots and a fine minerality and texture. A long silky finish.
Great wines of old school –this is the guide to our winery… Our vineyards are situated along the edge of the socalled Haardtrand, in Pfalz (Palatinate), 100 km North of Strassbourg. Here, where figs, chestnuts and almonds grow, you find ideal conditions for grape varieties that need a long vegetation period such as Riesling and Pinot Noir. We make one dry Riesling, named by the soil `Buntsandstein´, and one Pinot Noir which grows on chalky soil named `Kalkstein´. In addition we produce 4 different sparlings `Method classic´ from 100% Riesling´, minimum 32 months on the lees, one of it as `Brut Nature´ (no dosage, no added sulfit). Inspired by the work with traditional ageing methods and processing techniques we manage to produce elegant wines full of finesse. Our wines unite good balance with the interplay of mineral nuances, intensity and fullness. We think that such a quality can be achieved only by using the best hand – picked grapes of biodynamic cultivation. Very often, the harvesting process needs to be repeated several times. Due to minimalistic work in the cellar and long aging processes in wooden barrels, we produce wholesome and balanced wines of great aging potential. Our wines are DEMETER certified.
