A few words on the wine:
This is when natural wins doesn't know national borders. This is equally as Much Friuli & Jura as Rheinhessen. This wine takes pages to describe as it’s macerated & been under the flor (Sous Voile). So it has a complexity that can be hard to wrap your head around it your feel the need to pinpoint reference tastenotes. If you don’t have to do that. You’re just in fro a treat. Cause just as hard this wine is to describe, just as easy is it to enjoy. Just opened is’s all about freshness & you swallow it in big sips. If you can manage to let it rest for at bit after opening, maybe even in a decanter, you will be greeted with a plethora of nuances of flavours that really lets you kick back & be swallowed by this wine.
A few words on the producer:
The Schmitt winery has been in the family for over 230 years with Bianka and Daniel working their 16 hectares for the last decade. They work in full biodynamics which they learned from legendary Alsace vigneron Patrick Meyer and are one of only 80 producers in Germany to be Demeter certified.
The Rheinhessen is the largest wine growing region in Germany and is largely associated with bulk production. Though in recent years the regions reputation has begun to shift as a new generation of young, talented growers are working organically in the vineyard, reducing yields and realizing the incredible, undervalued Terroir they posses.
Bianka is from Hungary, Daniel is German. They met in 2012 when she was cellar hand in his parents winery. Together they have taken over the family winery and are producing excellent natural wines made without added yeas, temperature control, sulfur or filtration.
