Stefan Vetter Spätburgunder Rosé 2016

 

Winery: Stefan Vetter is a pioneering force in the natural wine evolution in Germany. More specifically, in Franconia, Bavaria in southeastern Germany. He farms his old vines organically and biodynamically with little intervention. For more details, check out Vom Boden’s [his US importer] page here .

Winemaking: The terraced vineyards are alongside the Maine River, in shell and limestone soils. Methode Rurale [or Méthode Ancestrale, Pétillant Naturel], bottling is before the end of fermentation, with the wine finished in the bottle. Spontaneous fermentation, unfined, unfiltered, minimal sulphur, suitable for vegans.

Tasting Notes: Pale coral in colour with aromas of Morello cherry, orange blossom, smoky sea salt and sweet hay. Mouth puckering tart red fruits, saline minerality and tight little bubbles are glossed by citrus acidity. Buttery toast on the bone-dry finish lingers between each sip. An engaging and super refreshing fusion of salty, fruity tartness.
