Winemaking: The 3 grape varieties were fermented separately with indigenous yeast with 1 week's semi-carbonic maceration in stainless steel. Silvaner and Müller Thurgau were fermented in stainless steel and Bacchus in large, old, oak barrel. No fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: These are the top 3 most planted grape varieties in the region and here they combine as 3 "friends" for this skin-contact cuvee. Stone fruit aromas with a hint of smoke and herbs.
Notes on the Winemaker: Melanie and Michael fell in love with natural wine whilst living just up the road from the bar (Archway) many years ago and decided they must return to Michael's father's winery in the small town of Kitzingen and convert everything to organic winemaking with no use of additives including sulphur. They are dedicated to produce wines that are alive and a true reflection of nature. We visited in 2018 and they are 2 of the most welcoming, knowledgable and inspiring people you can meet.
