2018 Große Wanderlust

How we made it

This is only the third time we gave  this wine a shot. With our own Regent vineyard struggling we also picked some biodynamically farmed grapes from a friend. Whole bunches were covered with destemmed & crushed berries. The must fermented to juice within two weeks and was left to macerate for another week before it was pressed and gently moved to old barriques. It inherited a noticeable but elegant wood flavor despite the age of those barriques. It’s a unique cuvée in our portfolio with warmth, fruit and body but still low in alcohol. It was not racked before bottling which took place in March 2020.
