Hiyu Wine Farm Smockshop Band White Wine Spring Ephemeral

This is Hiyu's first attempt at a Gemischter Satz-esque wine; the blends of many varieties grown within the city limits of Vienna and served in traditional wine bars there. They picked Gruner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc together, fermented them on the skins whole cluster for 9 days, pressed them by foot in a wooden press back into a wooden tank to complete their fermentation “en cuve”, before barreling back down into smaller old casks to age. Bottled early, without sulphur, to capture as much energy and life as possible.

The resulting wine captures all these referenced worlds. It glows and just alludes to orange. It tastes of  melon, long pepper and green high mountain oolong. The presentation of these is extremely delicate, precise and tea like.
