A 18-hour cold soak and a short maturation in stainless steel give this wine tempting aromas of subtle red fruit. Yellow pears and subtle layer of spice make it a real allrounder. Wonderful with white meat, vegetables or just on its own.
Vineyard: Katharina Wechsler's Grauburgunder (or Pinot Gris) comes from the Westhofener Benn and the Westhofener Steingrube vineyards, which consist of loamy loess limestone and lime marl.
Winemaking: After a cold soak the wine is fermented in stainless steel.
Katharina is one of many shining lights of a new generation of winemakers that cement Rheinhessen's reputation as a serious wine region for extraordinary quality. Following a Media career she decided in her 30’s to leave Berlin to start training as a winemaker, for which she also spent some significant time with Klaus Peter Keller. Back in 2012 she then took over the family estate in Westhofen and never looked back. Since then she has continuously improved quality and is currently in the process of converting to fully organic while also practicing biodynamics in her vineyards. The estate covers about 17ha with south facing vineyards and an average vine age of 50+ years.
