On the 20th of October 2021 we picked the Silvaner in a beautiful vineyard close to Eckelsheim. Whole bunches of grapes were transferred into a maceration tank and left to undergo full carbonic maceration for 4 weeks. We didn't do any pump over, the wine was left to do its thing. After pressing, the juice was transferred into a stainless steel tank to finish fermentation.
On the 4th December 2021 the wine was transferred into old oak barrels from Jura using gravity.
This is exotic, with a creamy mouthfeel, fresh and elegant with a lightly stewed tea characteristic. There are some hints of CO2 on the tongue from the maceration, which lift off with a little exposure to oxygen. This is one to try, it's interesting in so many ways.
Thanks to all the friends that helped us harvest that day and to Andi Mann for sharing his cellar with us.
