Description

Coming exclusively from prime locations around Bechtheim, this is a village wine which reflects more the respective terroir. Challenging but favourable vintage: Hot, dry and sunny summer with an early flowering and a fast ripening process. The weather conditions continued into the harvest, allowing many grapes to stay on the vine right up to October. Of course, the drought also led to water stress in some regions. Since temperate heat and cool nights dominated in September and October the grapes remained healthy and were able to develop intensive aromas. Skin contact for up to 48 hours with spontaneous fermentation in 20% wooden barrels & 80% stainless steel vats. After fermentation, the wine is left on its lees. On the nose aromas of apricot and nectarine, spicy herbs and citrus fruits give a pleasant bouquet and depth. This wine is smoky, yet tender & elegant, expressive & mineral. The finish of this wine shines with its creaminess and fine citrus aromas. Ideal companion to fish like salmon or char, Asian cuisine or vegetarian dishes. Certified Organic.
