Bianka and Daniel Schmitt are two talented young winemakers making biodynamic wine in the Rheinhessen region of Germany. The wines are pure and fresh, full of personality and life. Rheinhessen is the largest wine growing region in Germany, and has been largely associated with bulk production, however, in recent years, the region’s reputation has begun to shift as a new generation of younger, more innovative growers are reducing yields and honing in on the largely undervalued terroir of this region. Bianka and Daniel work hard to produce wines of the highest quality with as little intervention as possible.
The Weingut Schmitt winery has been in the family for over 200 years. Bianka and Daniel have been working their 16 hectares biodynamically for over a decade and are one of only 80 producers in Germany to be Demeter certified. They work with amphorae as well as used oak barrels and release a ‘Natur’ line that contains no added sulfur.
This is a light, bright, dry Riesling. Vivid aromas of crushed citrus leaves. On the palate, juicy notes of ripe mandarin and lemon lead into a zesty finish with mouthwatering acidity.
