Grape Variety: Riesling
Producer: Brand Brothers (Daniel & Jonas)

Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic Riesling grapes from a single plot were hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeast. Bottled with no fining or filtration and just a touch of sulphur.
This Wine: To celebrate our 5th anniversary we are releasing a special wine from the Brand Brothers, which is also 5 years old! This is a serious white wine made with grapes that come from a single vineyard known as Hill of Flags. This is one of their prime spots for growing Riesling as it gets plenty of sun but lots of cooling wind, hence the name. Expect a high intensity of lemon and lime aromas along with that hint of petroleum, synonymous with great expressions of this grape variety. Best with food.
Notes on the Winemaker: Daniel and Jonas Brand hail from Pfalz where they took over their family winery in 2014 to concentrate on fully natural wines which are unique, alive and bursting with personality. We visited in 2018 to explore the vineyards and learn the stories that accompany the wines.
