Description

The fact that the vines in Rheinhessen sprouted later than usual in 2021 can be seen as a stroke of luck, as it meant that they were spared the night frosts in April. Also, partly due to the fungal pressure caused by the wetness, the winegrowing year differed from the three hot and dry previous years. The late start of the harvest in mid-September compared to previous years was a fortunate coincidence, as sunny days in September contributed decisively to the harvesting of a very appealing vintage. Ripening in the cool produces fruity wines that offer a wide range of aromas even with moderate alcohol content. In addition, there is a fresh acidity – one of the main characteristics of German white wines. Grapes were hand picked, with maceration for up to 18 hours and spontaneous fermentation & maturation 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.
