Frei.Körper.Kultur ROT '19

The Schmitt winery has been in the family for over 230 years with Bianka and Daniel working their 16 hectares for the last decade. They work in full biodynamics which they learned from legendary Alsace vigneron Patrick Meyer and are one of only 80 producers in Germany to be Demeter certified. The Rheinhessen is the largest wine growing region in Germany and is largely associated with bulk production. Though in recent years the regions reputation has begun to shift as a new generation of young, talented growers are working organically in the vineyard, reducing yields and realizing the incredible, undervalued Terroir they posses. Bianka is from Hungary, Daniel is German. They met in 2012 when she was cellar hand in his parents winery. Together they have taken over the family winery and are producing excellent natural wines made without added yeas, temperature control, sulfur or filtration.

Description: Biancas and Daniels red 2019 FKK is first of all very friendly and easy-drinking: it smells and tastes crisp-red-fruity, rustic-rustic, of sour cherry, cranberry and raspberry, some forest fruit, sage, mint, juniper and conifers, tart and firm, with and without food. Since you don't always drink 1 liter straight away, it is also worth putting the FreiKörperKultur in the refrigerator for 2-3 days - then there will be an exciting development! First it becomes a bit more reductive with flint and matchstick, then earthy and herbaceous and then again like an awesome cherry juice for adults. Much more than easy drinking. Nice entry Natural wine from Schmitt winery Merlot, St. Laurent, Portuguese, Blaufränkisch and Pinot Noir. Stored in 4400 liter wooden barrels on the full lees. Bottled without filtration and without adding sulfur.
