Farming: Organic/Biodynamic

Fruit forward with touches of elderflower and citrus on the nose, which transfers to the palate beautifully. Thanks to slight funk on the palate and the well-integrated acidity this is a quenchable orange wine.

Spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts under temperature control and then aged in barrique for 8 months. The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay were co-fermented in an open vat for 14 days on skins, while Muskat Ottonel only stayed 3 days on the skins. The Traminer spent 20 days in amphora on skins and the Gelber Muskateller was pressed after a short time of maceration. After having been aged separately in amphoras and old oak for half a year, the four wines were merged right before bottling.
