Vetter - Flow Orange Wine
Superb texture with beautiful fuzzy tangerines and earthy savoury notes. A really elegant example of skin contact white wine making.
According to the Wines of Germany:
"Vetter’s vineyards are more rustic and pastoral than most in Germany...[with] vines set on terraces nestled quietly within Franken’s rolling hills and surrounded by the lush growth of the region. The vineyards are set either on sandstone or limestone soil, the oldest of which are on original rootstock and were planted as early as the 1930s.
Stefan farms by organic viticultural practices. Instead of herbicides, he uses manual tools like hoes and brushcutters, and all harvesting is done manually. Stefan is at the forefront of the natural wine movement in Germany. Fermentation is spontaneous, employing each grape’s natural yeasts. There are no fining or treatment agents, and all aging occurs in either neutral oak or newer 300 or 600-liter wood barrels.
