Wunschkind or "wish child" is the name for Materne & Schmitts first wine, and refers to Rebecca and Janina's greatest wish: to own a winery. The grapes for this wine are from a combination of all three villages (Winningen, Kobern, and Lehmen) in their portfolio. All vineyards are steep slopes or terraced vineyards and all from slate. One could say this is a Terrassen Mosel cuvée. Four to eight hour maceration on skins, natural settling by gravity, spontaneous fermentation, no chaptalization, no fining, no additions or reductions of any kind. The wine develops 11 months on the lees in stainless steel tanks; filtered and sulphured minimally before bottling.
