SCHWARZRIESLING (PINOT MEUNIER) - 2018

FRANCONIA, GERMANY

ORGANIC

10.5% ABV 

Born of a much more joyful harvest.  2018 yielded fantastic fruit that saw a return in carbonic fermentation which has led to a stunning resulting vintage!
It’s made of Schwarzriesling, a German word for Pinot Meunier, growing on shell limestone. Which has been farmed organically since 2014 and this doesn't see a touch of added sulphur.

In 2014 Michael and Melanie took over a vineyard from a colleague. There is a neat cottage in the middle of it which just looked like a perfect home for bats. Together with local bat here Christian Söder we developed the idea of a cycle: we get guano from the local bat colonies – a wonderful fertilizer. In the vineyard we have several bat boxes installed to offer opportunities for those lovely animals to hang out. In return we give a share of the revenue back to the bats via the Landesbund für Vogelshutz. The bat on the label is the grey long-eared bat which has become very rare in our area. It’s also incredibly cute and we want to help it stay around.
