Vater & Sohn - Müller-Thurgau Trocken NV
Bacchus, Müller-Thurgau, and Grauburgunder
From the importer -
The goal was to produce a couple of wines which would pass the quality test of the appellation. Optically clear, no funky flavors, stable. But still as natural as possible. The wines ferment spontaneously, go through malolactic fermentation as they like and remain on the full lees afterwards – just like our 2Naturkinder-wines. A light filtration takes place – if needed – just before bottling. And that’s where the sulfur comes in. With all wines having completed (malolactic) fermentation the danger of re-fermentation is pretty low. The first wines were bottled with as little as 25mg/l – and all of them passed the test. It might become a little more here and there but we were very excited to see that we can go pretty low. The basics are bottled, a Silvaner and a Müller-Thurgau, a few reds and a big Silvaner still have some time to develop in our old barrels.
The Vater & Sohn wines close the gap between the past and the future of our winery. They reflect what is important to us: family, love and tradition. And they are a clear sign that this little project will keep growing.
