Our Notes: The Karpatenschiefer is a white wine from the Spitzerberg – therefore the name “Carpathian schist”. The grapes were planted in 1970. After being handpicked, destemmed, and fermented in amphorae, they go though 60-90 days maceration and maturation for 6 months in 50% used oak barrels and 50% amphorae. Bottled at the end of August one year after harvest. Intense yellow-green; clear fruit, spicy pepper; a fine balance between acidity and residual sugar makes this wine remarkably lively. Pairs with starters, fish, asparagus, and poultry.
