Spern Steiner Kékfankos '18

ABOUT PETER WETZER

From extinct volcanoes, to near-cliffs that gaze out over Austria’s Neusiedlersee, his terroirs are incredibly unique. In these microscopic plots, everything is done by hand. He works to have very healthy soil, with natural biodiversity, and minimum spraying with copper sulfate and a nettle tincture he makes. He believes in minimal intervention in the vines, never tilling the soil or trimming the leaves. All grapes are hand-harvested, and the vineyards are all fermented separately. Fermentations take place in open topped containers with native yeasts and no additives before being barreled down into used Hungarian oak barrels.

SPERN STEINER KÉKFRANKOS '18

Steiner Vineyard has been called western Hungary’s grand-cru since the 15th Century. This site is warm and dry, but low yielding due to extremely low levels of soil nutrients. This wine was fermented in open top wood vats with a tiny amount of stem inclusion. After several weeks on the skins, the wine is pressed off into neutral barrel.

The wildest of Wetzer's wines, Spern Steiner boasts aromas of blood orange and nectarine alongside warm notes of red-apple skins, nutmeg and cinnamon. Tangy acidity and powdery tannins play on the palate.
