This is a lush yet zippy orange wine from 2Naturkinder who work seven hectares of vines in the southeast of Germany.
Tasting Notes: Apricots melt in a northern summer sun and fill the Bavarian air with a kind of golden haze that drapes the ground, running over stones in the ancient River Main: minerality, with hints of salinity, anchor the wine after the soaring aromatics of tropical fruit.
Vinification: from Jenny & Francois Selections' wonderful website:
"Grapes are hand harvested and destemmed. The different varieties are fermented separately on the skins for about one week in 500-600 liter barrels. The wine is blended around March and goes into stainless steel tanks for elevage for about 9 months on the full lees. The wine is not racked and is bottled unfined and unfiltered with zero addition of sulfur."
