Description

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 while the red wines show great potential. Grapes were hand picked, with maceration for up to 18 hours and spontaneous fermentation with 10% aged in wooden barrels and 90% in stainless steel. This is a light wine, little effervescent, a fervent lemon crisp, white peaches and stone fruit aromas with high refreshing acidity. Pale yellow colour with green reflexes, a nose full of ripe fruit aromas of citrus, apricot & light spice notes with a juicy palate. Certified Vegan and Organic.
