A Wine That
is up there with the greatest German white wines of all time. From a duo who cut their own winemaking teeth in Burgundy, this brings Burgundian knowhow to Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc). Möhlin is the name of the vineyard; one of the steepest and most beautiful plots in the small estate — "super cold but fantastic for our idea of great wine." Saline, sappy, with tightwound acidity, this is all about the savoury side of wine. Serve with sushi or Bao buns and marvel at how the umami flavours develop in the wine.

Where and How?
Weissburgunder aka Pinot Blanc from an old terraced vineyard on the 'Ölberg' hill. The vineyards were planted in the 1950s with a very low yielding massal selection of Weissburgunder. The soils are limestone based with occasional 'Loess' top soils. Grapes are hand harvested, directly pressed and the wine is aged in small Burgundy barrels. Before bottling the wine is aged for a further six months in tank.
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.
