A special one. Delicately spiced, a little smoky, with comice pear, herbal accents of fennel and sage, continues to develop once open. Complexity sings loudest here, though there’s a wild harmony in the mix. Skin is a Silvaner skin contact wine from 45-year-old vines in Germany's Franken region. Partially destemmed and fermented in an amphora buried in the ground, aged for 9 months and then pressed on a basket press, the wine is then left to rest in a barrel for one month. 

ABOUT ANDI WEIGAND

Andi Weigand is part of the new guard on the German wine scene, throwing out the book of German winemaking, and reshaping the wine landscape. A second generation winemaker, Andi began his journey making wine under his family label Weingut Weigand in 2015. With the first release of the natural wines under his eponymous label in 2018, also the first year their vineyards achieved organic certification.  

His vineyards are located on the Iphöfer Kronsberg, a slope that features Keuper soil including the oldest Muller Thurgau in the region, over 60 years-old. He uses an 80 year old basket press and very large wooden barrels. While he has modernized the winery, he has also maintained tradition: every grape is picked by hand, and every wine is carefully handcrafted, with incredible attention to detail. All wines are filled without filtration or adding any sulfur.
