  • Other Information:About: A sparkling white wine made from 100% Welschriesling, english: Italian Riesling. It’s Brut, that means there remained 7 g/l sugar when fermenting in the bottle. We did not add any sugar in the end. We named him after our nephew Moritz, because he is as refreshing as this wine. For environmental reasons, as we do with all our wines, we bottled Morizz without a capsule.   Vinification: For the base wine we hand harvested the grapes on august 28th. After a gentle pressing, the wine fermented spontaneously.  Like a champagner (Méthode Traditionnelle) the wine was filled in sparkling wine bottles on july 7th in 2018 and classically refermented in the bottle and was left to mature on its lees until april 2020. This gives it its typical champagne taste profile and the fine perlage. The duration of time on the lees is listed on the back label. The bottles were disgorged and corked by hand.    Grown, produced and bottled :  WASSMANN PINCE BT.
