Matin Fou 2019
Grape Variety: Sylvaner
Producer: Christophe Lindenlaub
Region: Dorlisheim, Alsace, France
Wild Scale: 4/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic Sylvaner grapes were harvested by hand. Fermentation with wild yeast in stainless steel tanks. Unfiltered and bottled with zero sulphur.
This Wine: Mineral-driven white wine with concentrated lemon notes. Medium to full bodied after time in cellar but still showing electric acidity. Sylvaner (or Silvaner in Germany) is an underrated grape variety that is finally getting the attention it deserves and this wine really shows its ageing potential.
Notes on the Winemaker: Christophe Lindenlaub's family have been making wine in this part of Alsace for over 200 years and the vineyards have undergone organic conversion since 2012. He makes wines full brimming with energy and life.
