Organic/Biodynamic50% Pinot Blanc (20 years old), 50% Pinot Gris (50 years old)The Pinot Blanc is planted on loess while the Pinot Gris is planted on loess with flinty subsoils derived from the Rhine river and both are from terraced vineyards. The "Pinot" is a selected late harvest, hand-picked at the end of September with extensive vineyard sorting. The wine spends three weeks macerating in open vats allowing spontaneous fermentation to occur with ambient yeast. The entire time the wine spends in contact with lees and is bottled unfiltered. Stirring takes place every 14 days in the first four months only. Aged in barrique for 18 months. No fining or filtering and under 1g of residual sugar. Limited Production.
