This is a crunchy co-ferment from Martin Wörner of Marto who works in the village of Flonheim in Germany's famous Rheinheissen winemaking region.
Tasting Notes: A light red whose easy-drinking character belies just how perfectly pitched this blend is -- the breadth of a Pinot Blanc's texture with the pristine acidity of Pinot Gris blended into Riesling, and the berried and spiced perfection of German Pinot Noir. An absolute banger.
Vinification: A blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Pinot Blanc grapes that are hand-harvested early from vines grown on sandstone soils. The spontaneously fermenting juice macerates for two weeks before full fermentation and aging in big old oak barrels for 10 months atop the lees. There is no racking. Unfined, unfiltered with no additional SO2. 10.5%ABV
