2017 Schnaitmann Simonroth Lemberger Organic

Schnaitmann

Württemberg

Deep cherry red in colour with aromas of violets, thyme, laurel, pepper and juniper, underpinned by cassis blackberry, redcurrant and sour cherry. A racy wine with tension due to the elegant acidity, fine-grained grippy tannin structure and lots of freshness, terrific length!


Viticulture

Grown on gypsum marl soils, organically certified


Vinification

Spontaneous fermentation with whole bunches, 3 weeks on the mash, ageing in old barrels of 300 litre and tonneaux for 16 months. Bottled unfiltered, suitable for vegans


Recommendation

Pair with rich game dishes, or a hearty beef or lamb stew
