We know you shouldn’t pick a wine just because of the funky label, but, if that’s why you chose this one then you’d be doing something good. Something very good.
Another potation from Jan Matthias Klein, aka, a true genius of wine, as part of his ‘Pandamonium Project’. The applaudable project involves sourcing organic fruit from small, independent growers and using zero sulfur to create wines that are unfiltered and uncompromised.
For this particular bottle, Klein has partnered with a Mosel winemaker from his very own home village of Kröv...talk about supporting your locals!
24-hour maceration leads to complexity of character, and the final product is a medium-bodied wine with good acidity. Expect notes of citrus, pear, apple and honey, with a residual CO2 resulting in a light effervescence that varies from bottle to bottle, but which provides a palate-pleasing tingle every time.
Made from 100% Riesling.
Does not contain sulfites.
