A fruity, fizzy dry rose from a biodynamic producer in Bavaria. 100% Schwarzriesling, the local name for Champange grape Pinot Meunier, but made sparkling with only a single natural fermentation in the methode ancestrale style, aka a pet-nat. All hand harvested fruit, half are destemmed and the rest is fermented whole cluster without temperature control to make a semi-carbonic wine. Bottled before fermentation is finished to capture the natural gases and never sulfured at any point.
From the mouth of the importer (Jenny & Francois):
"Micheal Voelker and Melanie Drese spent many years working in other fields, traveling the world and living in Heidelberg, Regensburg, London, and New York. In 2013 they returned to begin taking over Michael’s father’s winery in Kitzingen in Bavarian Germany. Michael’s father is a long time winemaker, who in fact sits on the quality control board for the appellation, but has been very supportive of Michael’s desire to make wine without additives. They began to make natural wines under the 2naturkinder label as a side project for the winery, and since then have decided to fully expand the project to take over more of the winery’s production. Michael has a particular interest in bats in the vineyard, and a few of the labels are inspired by them. He obtains bat guano from a local nature conservancy, which he uses when fertilizer is required. He is also sponsoring a research project to fund the role of bats in the vineyard."
