2018 Weingut Knauss La Boutanche Trollinger - Wurttemberg, Germany (1Ltr)
Andi Knauss works the steep, shell-limestone slopes of his estate vineyards as naturally as possible: chemicals are eschewed in favor of natural treatments and a healthy planting of cover crops among the vines. The same philosophy holds in the cellar: spontaneous fermentations, gravity instead of pumps, barrels selected so as not to mark the wines, and minimal use of sulfur. This approach leads to a pure expression of this light, German grape (Trollinger aka Schiava in Italy). Fresh bing cherry and plum aromas and flavors with a granite mineral note and a crisp, clean, lively finish, try this wine with spicy spanish sausage, roasted chicken or a hard cheese like a pecorino.
