Am Stein Pure and Naked Pet Nat (750ml)
Weingut Am Stein is nestled on the side of the most famous Franconian vineyard, the Würzburger Stein. The domain has been in the Knoll family for five generations and is currently in the hands of Ludwig and Sandra Knoll. It is located on the Würzburger Stein, the most famous vineyard near the city. At 27 ha it is also one of the bigger private domains in the area. The family Knoll is lucky enough to own parcels in the best terroirs of the region; the Würzburger Stein, Stettener Stein and Innere Leiste. Vineyard work has followed biodynamic principles since 2007.
The wines of Am Stein are superior quality modern German wines with incredible aromatics, purity of flavour, freshness and balance.
This is a blend of Cabernet Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Fragrant-aromatics of elderflower, lemongrass and fresh balm mint. Naturally acidic structure and mouthwatering green contours. 9 g/l RS. As indicated by the wine’s name, this sparkling is “pure and naked”; no additives during the winemaking process, simply “good wibes” (as they would say in German).
A pétillant naturel is made by the méthode ancestrale, predating the méthode champenoise. A wine produced by the méthode ancestrale means that it was bottled prior to completing its fermentation, with the natural sugars and wild yeast in the grape must creating a lightly sparkling wine or “pétillant naturel” in each bottle or can. Unlike a sparkling wine made by the méthode champenoise, the resulting lees remain undisgorged and unfiltered and, therefore, the wine is perceptibly cloudy.
