Type: Orange Wine
Grape: Scheurebe/Muscat Blanc
Maischevergoren translates to 'skin contact.' Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, and crushed by foot. Some of the skins are left in contact with the juice for 2 weeks, and some are left in contact for 4 weeks, making Christian’s only orange wine. The juice ferments in large barrels with indigenous yeast and no racking. It spends 1 year aging in 500 to 1500-liter barrels and is bottled without fining or filtering and no addition of sulfur.
A beautiful, aromatic orange wine with notes of peach, apricots, sage and hibiscus flower. Complex and slightly earthy, with soft tannins and a persistent finish.
