Notes from Living Wines:
This is always a stunning Riesling of wonderful length and minerality made from grapes picked from various parcels around the village of Ammerschwihr.
The vines have been managed biodynamically since 1998 and hence have become stronger and more resilient as a result.
This wine contains grapes from the 2020 and 2021 vintages, from vineyards to the east and south-east of Ammerschwihr, including Holderbaum, Prediger and Birgele.
The pomace from the 2021 vintage was added to the still-aging 2020 wine to restart the fermentation. The 2020 and 2021 were ready to bottle at the same time so they did an experiment blending them and it was very successful so that’s what was done. Interestingly, they were two completely different vintages. Aged in stainless steel. 13% ABV.
