Grapes Grüner Veltliner 85%, Riesling 15%
ProfileCrisp, refreshing, semi-sparkling and bone dry. The wine definitely sees influence from yeast. The lees give the wine a distinctive salty, and sourdough flavor profile. The fruit is a combination of tart apple and white peach. The wine also has a bit of a cheese rind aroma that cleans up well on the palate.
Grape GrowingThe grapes are all grown DEMETER certified biodynamic. They are hand harvested.
WinemakingThe Grüner-Veltliner is aged on its lees in steel, the Riesling in 600L wood barrels. This wine is made from half 2018 and half 2019 fruit. The 2018 fermented separately and was then combined to start the beginning of the Solera. The next year, the second fermentation took place with the addition of new juice directly intro the wine from the Solera from the previous year. The fermentation finished completely in bottle, and was never filtered there after. A true Pet Nat.
More About the WineThis is the first time JZ has made this wine for public sale. Originally, a special project for another client, we were fortunate enough to get some as well.
