Where and How?
This is Pinot Noir grown on German soils, aka Spätburgunder. As the duo cut their teeth in Burgundy, they know Pinot clones differs enormously, hence they label this by its German name. This fruit comes from three vineyards, all on loess soils & organically farmed. The majority comes from the Kaiserstuhl, with the other two sites located just south of Staufen, on the foothills of the Black Forest.
100% carbonic maceration for 10 days after which the grapes were pressed and aged in stainless steel tanks until Spring 2021. Unfined, unfiltered and bottled without SO2.
The Winemaker: Wasenhaus
You might think two Germans starting their own wine project would have met on home soil, but in fact they met and conjured up the notion of Wasenhaus while living on the hallowed ground of Burgundy.
Alexander Götze, a landscaper-turned-winemaker, and Christoph Wolber, who’d decided that viticulture was the most exciting form of agriculture, had each found their own way to Meursault. There, they would become united in a new mission: to see if they could create some Burgundian-inspired magic of their own, in Germany.
