Christophe Lindenlaub, Pino Citron 2018
A certified all-round banger of wine and one we tried but failed to secure earlier in the year! Pino Citron is a Pet-Nat made from a concoction of Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc bursting with grapefruit juice and green apple vibes and a silky touch of salinity. One for the acid lovers here!
Christophe Lindenlaub comes from a long line of winemakers in Alsace with the family growing grapes here since the 18th century. The vineyards have been worked organically since 2009 and the wines made fully naturally since 2014. All grapes are handpicked, fermented with indigenous yeasts and bottled without any additions or filtration. Though all unique, Christophe's wines invariably have great energy and tension with nervy acidity and vibrant fruit.
