Grape Variety: Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder)
Producer: 2Naturkinder (Melanie Drese and Michael Völker)
Region: Kitzingen, Franken, Germany
Wild Scale: 3/5
Vegan Friendly Wine
Winemaking: Organic grapes were hand harvested and de-stemmed before 20% of the stems were added back into the must. Fermentation in stainless steel with indigenous yeast before ageing in old barrels for 18 months. Bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: Natural red wine that is still and dry with precision, balance and finesse. Great intensity of the classic Pinot Noir 'sour cherry' notes and no taste of oak. High in acidity and relatively low alcohol content of 10.5%. A great expression for Pinot lovers.
Notes on the Winemaker: Melanie and Michael fell in love with natural wine whilst living just up the road from the bar (Archway) many years ago and decided they must return to Michael's father's winery in the small town of Kitzingen and convert everything to organic winemaking with no use of additives including sulphur. They are dedicated to produce wines that are alive and a true reflection of nature. We visited in 2018 and they are 2 of the most welcoming, knowledgeable and inspiring people you can meet.
