A macerated blend of some German varieties from a Huxelrebe, Wurzer and Muller Thurgau from this stellar German producer. Salty and savoury at the same time, with a skinsy and citrus pith, curd and lemonade fruit. Perfect balance, a lots of citrus and dried fruit packed on the nose. Good acidity and structure. Moreish especially on a warmer day. This one is not disgorged, so please beware there may be some gushing. Have a cup ready and serve it chilled! 9.5% abv.
Martin Wörner is based in Rheinhessen and farms organically on sandstone soils. Having staged with Tom Lubbe (of Matassa) and Steph and Eddie at Gut Oggau, his wines are expressive, raw and often quite fun too. Fully invested in natural processes, grapes are hand-harvested. In the winery indigenous yeast and an ambient ferment are the order of the day, the wines undergo no fining or filtration, and no sulphur is added. Watch this young winemaker, we are excited to see what's in store.
