60% Riesling, 30% Gewurz, 10% Pinot Gris. Fruit was destemmed and fermented naturally in vertical stainless steel tanks. During fermentation the cap was punched down twice daily until it started to weaken. Tanks were then sealed tight for several months. Pressed after 8 months on skins. Aged in neutral oak for 2 months. Prior to bottling Pinot Gris juice from the 2020 harvest was added for second ferment in-bottle. Aged a further 10 months on lees. Bottled unfiltered.
Notes of orange peel soaked in honey blend with green mango and golden delicious apples. The palate is carried through by a very delicate mousse and a moderate tannin structure that lingers on the finish. A very untraditional, traditional method sparkling wine.
