2021 Silvaner Pet-Nat

How we made it

The vineyard has been farmed organically for 7 years now. The shell-limestone soil has a fat, fertile clay layer letting the vines grow extraordinarily strong. So strong that the vines are very tricky to manage. Besides the Bacchus and the Heimat Silvaner vineyard this is the most work-intense one.

We harvested twice for this Pet-Nat. The first batch was fermented after a night of skin contact. The second batch picked one week later fermented on the skins for about a week before the batches were blended and bottled in October. After finishing fermentation the bottles were warmly disgorged by hand in April 2022.
