Schmetterling, Madame Flock 2019
Müller-Thurgau-Rielsing. Mosel, Germany
Ou Schmetterling is a cuvée of organically grown (uncertified) Müller-Thurgau and our Wolfgang Riesling vineyard in Kobern. The cuvée is a flocking delight: the phenolics of the whole bunch fermented Müller blended with the richness of the Koberner Riesling make for a mouthwatering powerhouse of a wine. Nectarean with a hint of bruised peach on the nose, balanced by a perfectly ripe citric fruit basket on the palate, framed by a subtle structural acidity and a lean phenolic backbone all combine to drive the palate home with a lengthy finish.
