Viticulture: Natural Wine / Biodynamic vineyards
The grapes were direct pressed straight into large 1200L German oak (stückfass) where they ferment and age for 1,5 years. Bottled without any filtration nor addition of sulphur.
The wine opens with an elegant flinty reduction on the nose paired with a lot of peach, apricot and floral aromatics typical of Riesling. Round palate with a hint of residual sugar and a delicate spritz providing an extra kick of freshness.
Andi took over the family estate after studying winemaking at Geisenheim. His family have been making wine since 1699 in Eckelsheim. His wines are full of energy and he continues to put biodiversity at the heart of what he does. “For me, natural wines are about openness and intensity of taste, and that’s what I want to show with my wines. I want to produce wines that show where they come from, and if they can show that for a long time - that is my dream and my goal.”
