Muller-Thurgau

This yellow-orange-colored wine reveals quite some CO2 upon opening before revealing some direct and very aromatic scents of dried flowers, candied citrus, minty tangerine, verbena, apple, and licorice, all wrapped into quite some spices. It proves is nicely perfumed and refreshing on the palate, as flavors of rose petal interplay with juicy apple and zest. The finish is quite tight, tannic, and tart. All these elements are pepped up by a good dollop of CO2 at first. After some extensive airing, the wine develops a smoother and more delicate side, with still some tickly and almost racy acidity in the background. The after-taste is long and aromatic. This natural Müller-Thurgau simply needs patience to fully shine. .Half the grapes come from the Krov Paradies behind the winery, a limestone and clay site. The other half comes from the Krov Letterlay, a steep site of grey slate, contributing Pinot of more tension and less overt ripeness. Grapes are destemmed and fermented in open steel vats. Fermentation lasts 18 days followed by 4 weeks on the skins. After pressing, the wine is transferred to a 1000L fuder and aged for 18 months. Unfined, unfiltered, zero added sulfur. Certified organic and vegan.
