  • Riesling

The grapes with botrytis have been selected and left to macerate shortly on the skins. Openly fermented in a wooden barrique. Left alone for 3 years before bottling.

This discovery that we made at the winery while tasting different barrels blew our minds away. As soon as Hager Matthias told us about this one barrel of Riesling, which he had in a corner of the cellar and forgot about it, that held something exciting, we could't wait to try it! An openly fermented Riesling, matured with flor yeast worked its own magic in silence! What a discovery.... At that time the wine was slightly sweet with a cool oxidative style that reminded us of Jura wines, great complexity and lots of flavours jumping around. We predicted that the sugars would eventually turn so we decided to bottle the wine in a small sparkling bottle with a crown cap. And we were right, now this gorgeous wine isn't sweet anymore instead it is slightly fizzy. Still holding all that complex aromas and fun oxidative flair, it is the perfect wine to accompany cheese platters and creamy desserts!

The label represent the fantastic old cellar where Matthias' brother Hermann keeps all the best vintages hidden. The cellar is an underground cave filled with thousands of Matthias' wines. Old vintages covered with thick mould resting happily in the shadows down in a spooky labyrinth. The beautiful design of the label was designed by Matthias Bergsmann.
