2016 Salwey Sieben Winter

Description

Assemblage of 80% pinot gris and 20% chardonnay. From volcanic soils. Harvested in September 2016. An experiment by Konrad Salwey: The wine was left on the lees in a 5,000 litre barrel for seven years (as the name suggests) before it was bottled without filtration in early 2023. During the long maturation on natural yeasts, the must was regularly and carefully stirred. To counteract evaporation, the barrel was also constantly topped up.
