A singular Pinot Noir from the steep slopes of the Mosel. Vinified with zero additions in very old large barrels, this Pinot is light and spicy with an intriguing blend of red and black fruits, and a lovely refreshing finish. Find out more.
Mosel Riesling, but not as you know it. Blended with Sauvignon Blanc, Muller Thurgau and Muscat, the wine is cloudy and has a refreshing spritz. Fruit profile leans towards stone fruit, with some rounded, lactic notes and a floral lift from the Muscat. It's light and breezy too; this cooler climate leaving the wine a happily gluggable 11 degrees. With one foot in the orange wine zone, a portion of the grapes are macerated on the skins for a few days, lending a subtle tannic grip and heightening the aromatic potential.
It's zippy, fresh and funky new-school Deutschland that pushes against against the strict rules of the Prädikat System.
Made by Jan Klein, the latest generation at the helm on this historical estate which has been in the family since 1805, but operating as a winery since 862...! Jan started to produce a special range of wines with no added sulphites in 2014, a range that has now expanded to nearly ten singular wines. They are a departure from what you'd expect from the Mosel. As such the wine is labelled as 'landwein' - a lowly denomination that really belies the magic in the bottle, but which many contemporary German producers are working under for freedom of expression. We're inclined to think it is most definitely going to catch on.
