First Belgian Brutal Wine.
Wow. We are so proud. We are finally able to present you the FIRST Belgian Brutal wine. After months of hard work this baby is finally ready for you guys to drink. But only a limited amount will be available.
But let's start at the beginning. For those who don't know what a Brutal wine is:
What is a Brutal Wine?
Brutal Wines have zero added sulphur hence the Limburg wolf 🐺 that eats the sulfites (SO2) and the winemaker must not interfere with the wine in the entire process. It has gotten a reputation as one of the most bizarre wines out there, but it is really just a pure natural wine with the purest grapes. In this case the wines were waaaay too explosive at first. So it had to be manually openened and capped again, which took great effort.
The Brutal Wines are seen as an experiment by the winemaker. They are pretty rare since it usually is a once in a lifetime experiment, and therefor highly-sought after and have a certain cult style in the natural wine scene.
Brutal Maximal Belge?
Well, at first glance the name speaks for itself. It's a "100% Belgian Brutal" created and designed in this country. But the "Maximal" is also a reference to the actual creator of the wine, who is called Maxime. Owner of Belgian wine domain Optimbulles, and such a nice guy. Please do pay them a visit. They have the most beautifull domain and offer great tastings.
Should you have missed the opportunity to buy one of these lovely wines: not to worry. A next - different - Belgian Brutal is already in the making. Whoop whoop. That's right.
