“I left this wine completely to its own devices – no plan, no specifications. I simply followed the needs of the grapes and the wine completely wildly and with a lot of love. No more and no less” – Christina Netzl

A blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc & Welschriesling on gravel & gravely loess soil. Fermentation on the skins in open fermenters followed by a maceration of 3 weeks. Aged for 6 months in old barrels. Bottled unfiltered & unfined. It’s aroma which is quite wild at first comes out of the glass & after it settles makes room for intense, exotic fruit nuances, herbal spices & some nutty notes, fresh biscuit & with an exciting tannic backbone interrupting the juicy fruit. Extremely long lasting & complex.
Enjoy with lots of spice & cheese.
Ideal drinking temperature 8 °C.
