The story

On their beloved Eselsberg, the hill where the Heimat Silvaner and the Fledermaus grow on, there is a big plot (almost one hectare) with two thirds Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) and one third Riesling growing on it. They experimented several years to find the right interpretation of the grapes and with the 2018 vintage they finally got it. The blend is dedicated to the “Weinschwärmer” (Deilephila porcellus), a beautifully coloured moth who lives in our area. Not only does that moth carry the word “wine” in its name but it’s also a delicacy for our local bats.

How they made it

The grapes from the younger Riesling section of the vineyard got pressed directly to maintain a razor-sharp acidity while the Grauburgunder grapes were destemmed and fermented on the skins for about a week. The two batches were blended in April 2019 into two barrels and were bottled in March 2020.

Taste notes : Strawberry, peach, yellow cherry’s and baked apples.
