Estate: Brothers Daniel and Jonas Brand are the 5th generation of their family to craft wine in the northern Pfalz region of Germany. Their 18 hectares of vineyards are farmed using biodynamic, low intervention and organic [certified] methods. All of their labels are illustrations by their grandmother, Oma Helga.
Winemaking: Fermented with indigenous yeasts, pet-nat method [Pétillant Naturel, or Metodo Ancestrale], where the still fermenting wine is bottled, with fermentation finished in the bottle [creating the bubbles]. Unfined, unfiltered
Tasting Notes: Coral ruby in colour, with aromas of cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, citrus zest and iron minerals. Citrus acidity glosses strawberry, red currant, cherry, pomegranate and wildflowers. Good consistent fizz runs through to cherry and red currant on the chalky mineral driven finish. Crisp, tangy, agile and well balanced.
90% Pinot Noir [Spatburgunder], 10% Blauer Portugieser
