2016 Kleine Wanderlust


From two hugely unfashionable hybrid/crossed varieties they have managed to make some bright and juicy semi-carbo goodness.

The Regent vines grow in Sulzfeld (just a few kilometres away from the winery) on shell limestone. Aiming for ripe but not “bursting” grapes, destemmed but the berries not crushed to get a bit of a carbonic effect. After a week the must was pressed and the juice kept fermenting in steel. The wine was racked once around Christmas and blended before bottling with 15% of  Domina we had kept from 2015. Harvested in September 2016 and bottled in July 2017.
