TASTING NOTE

Delicately floral with aromas of stone fruit and hints of white spice. It has a generous mouthfeel, with delicious ripe lemon peel characters and a mineral finish.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Weingut Messmer, in the Pfalz region, was founded by Herbert and Elizabeth Messmer in 1960. It's situated in Burrweiler, in the south-west of Germany, less than 50 miles from the border with France and to the north-west of Stuttgart. The yellow sandstone buildings had already been home to winemaking for around 250 years before they arrived.

The terroir is made up of seven different soil types: slate, red sandstone, granite, limestone, loam, sand and 'muschelkalk' - a calcareous soil with substantial deposits of fossilised mussel shells. Gregor works to preserve the health and mineral content of the soils - they use only organic fertilisers, and in 2011 they began the biodynamic cultivation of some sites. In the winery fermentations are cool, slow and small batch; grapes are only ever partially de-stemmed; and wines are bottled without fining and with only the gentlest filtration.
