A litre of German juicy goodness! Hand-harvested grapes are destemmed with the free-run juice seperated and the grapes are left on skins for 4 weeks. They are then pressed and go through natural fermentation. A purple-red blend of Dornfelder and Portugieser, packed with brambly fruits, blackcurrants, sloes, and blackberries, very juicy, almost mouth-watering finish. Unfined, unfiltered, and no added sulphur.
The Schmitt winery has been in the family for over 230 years with Bianka and Daniel working their 16 hectares for the last decade. Bianka comes from Hungary and met Daniel in 2012 when she was cellar hand in his parent’s winery. The pair work the vineyards in line with Biodynamic practices which they learned from Alsace vigneron Patrick Meyer and are one of only 80 producers in Germany to be Demeter certified.
