Andi Knauss | Riesling "Schnait"
Natural wine has no uniform definition. It is a general term used to describe artisanal wine made using organically and/or biodynamically grown hand-picked grapes which are vinified with little or no intervention. Winemakers often rely on indigenous yeast to catalyse natural fermentation, avoiding the use of any chemicals, additives or sulphites.
The result is wine which is alive, energetic, vibrant and unexpected – a welcomed contrast to the industrial practices of the wine industry.
Name of Estate/Domaine:
Dry and aromatic with floral hints, ripe apple, winter spices and a touch of ginger. We at Wine Fiend adore Riesling and this hits every note.

Germany - Württemberg
The Selection comes from a parcels of Stubensandstein soils on the limestone slopes facing the winery (traditionally the best site for riesling in the village). The wine enjoys a longer elevage than the G, and while it's good to drink as soon as it is bottled, it can age for 5-10 years. This wine screams terroir.
