Dry white wine, 75cl. Medium bodied Riesling, Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau and Pinot Blanc blend from Rheinhessen, Germany. 10.5% ABV. Natural wine. Organic, Biodynamic, Vegan
The bouquet of flowers and fruits leads to a dry palate with yellow apples, citrus fruits, peaches and hazelnuts with subtle yeast. The wonderful density combined with mouthwatering acidity and salty notes. Slightly cloudy yellow in the glass. A fine example of natural wine!
Producer Profile Weingut Schätzel
The Schätzel family has been producing wine since 1350, making them the oldest winemaking family in the Rheinhessen. The red slate of the vineyards around Nierstein, where the estate is based, spans six hectares, of which the majority is Riesling. In 2008, when Kai Schätzel took over his family’s estate, he transformed it to organic and biodynamic farming and reintroduced traditional winemaking methods. He has developed a reputation for his unique style which involves less alcohol, less exuberant fruit, more minerality and a more cutting and distinctive flavour profile. In 2016, he was included into the prestigious VDP, his single vineyards were certified Grosses Gewächs, and his 2013 ReinSchiefer Riesling was awarded top honours by the Drinks Business Magazine.
