Grapes: Pinot Gris Style: Sparkling Orange ABV: 13% Any added sulphites: No Filtered: No Method: Organic
If you’re into your orange pet-nats this one is for you. This wine is ripe with peach and grapefruit, a sweet but bitter number, stone fruit follows through on the palate with a nice rolling bubble. Perfect for drinking in the sunshine!
From 30 to 40 year old vines planted on clay and limestone soils. The grapes were harvested and macerated in whole bunches for just two days before being pressed off to stainless steel tank, bottled with a few grams of sugar left, pet nat style. Christophe chose not to disgorge this wine, which is a wonderful cloudy peach colour.
Christophe Lindenlaub comes from a long line of winemakers in Alsace with the family growing grapes here since the 18th century. The vineyards have been worked organically since 2009 and the wines made fully naturally since 2014. All grapes are handpicked, fermented with indigenous yeasts and bottled without any additions or filtration. Though all unique, Christophe's wines invariably have great energy and tension with nervy acidity and vibrant fruit.
