P N T & C. 2020
The estate wines are characterized by the variety of vineyards and are therefore the calling card of this winery. The vines ripen exclusively in the prime locations around Bechtheim and Westhofen. The characteristic variety of the soils and the high maturity give them their special expression. A creation of young vines, planted on the traditional soil of the Bechtheimer terroir. Through strong reduction in yield, these young vines unfold their full power. Accurately developed and matured over several months to provide an extraordinary sensory experience. The result is innovative, elegant & a very fine wine. 100% Pinot Noir. The 2020 vintage produced very good qualities and a slightly below-average harvest, estimated at 8.6 million hectolitres nationwide. Weather conditions varied significantly in the growing areas. However, thanks to the sunny and dry late summer in Rheinhessen, highly ripe and very healthy grapes could be harvested within a very
short period. The first white wines already present themselves accordingly aromatic and extremely fruity and the red wines show great potential. The grapes are directly pressed & blended with juice deductions of red wine in 100% stainless steel vats. Slender, fine juicy type, with raspberry & hints of different berries with acidity & great freshness. Certified Vegan & Organic.
Terramatter is an unfiltered wine, produced from Alvarinho grapes which are grown organically. Intense in colour, aromatically expressive and complex on both nose and palate. The wine’s partial malolactic fermentation in chestnut barrels and an early harvest are the fundamental factors underlying its personality. This is a wine made for food pairing with its smooth and complex flavour, while also having a vibrant, fresh and slightly vegetal finish.
Ried Altenberg Weißburgunder 2019
“Ripe fruits like melons and a hint of pear on the nose, nuts and honey, well-structured and full-bodied palate, an abundance of juice, elegant freshness, creamy with endless pleasure.” Coming from the single vineyard Altenberg in Göttlesbrunn with Danube gravel and loessy lower layers soil. One of the cooler hills in with influences coming from the close forest and east-facing exposure. The Pinot blanc loves the Pannonian climate with its warm late summers and falls. It is because of this combination the grapes get exceptionally ripe and makes the achievement of such an extraordinary extract on the palate possible. Enjoy with vegetable and meat-dishes with exotic herbs, Asian dishes, soufflés and pastries & cheese. Ideal drinking temperature 10 °C.

The “Maestro” by Enza La Fauci is a Sicilian red wine from the province of Messina, made from 100% Nocera grapes. These vines are situated at an altitude of 330m above sea level on a clay-limestone mix soil. The grapes are cold macerated prior fermentation with indigenous yeasts.

In the mouth it is savoury and with a sweet tannin. It is a taste of great elegance, which is beautiful to sip and so capable of transporting you to the hills of Faro, a magical place, among the most beautiful and least known in all of eastern Sicily but which can give unique wines with a strong Mediterranean character. Ideal pairing with spicy meat dishes.
Malayeto was the first wine to be launched in the series of terroir-focused wines from Fitero, the only place in Navarra located in the Iberian Mountains, just on the geological border between the Sierra de Cameros mountains and the Ebro river basin. The Malayeto parcel is found at a latitude of 42.05° and an altitude of 520 metres, the soils are rocky and stony, with variegated clays, limestone and composite soils. These characteristics, in conjunction with the continental climate, mean that the roots have to burrow deep into the soil to find water. The aim is to keep on improving the biodiversity of this vineyard, as well as taking active steps to recuperate the native flora. Along with sustainable viticulture practices, these factors define the unique terroir of a sole plot of land. Alcoholic fermentation in 3.500-litre wooden tanks, using just indigenous yeast, malolactic fermentation and 9 months ageing in 300-litre 2 years used French barrels. 2 months refinement in 4.500-litre wooden tanks.
