Kalkspitz is a sparkling wine made in the M�thode ancestrale, also known as "P�tillant naturel" or "Pet Nat". This is the most natural method of producing sparkling wine with the least intervention but lots of instinct from the winemaker. Here, the fermenting must, which still contains unfermented sugar is bottled and sealed with a crown cap. The moment of bottling is absolutely decisive, because the residual sugar content determines the level of carbonation as the fermentation process continues in the bottle. This wine will not be degorged will thus retain a slight cloudiness. Because lees and acidity will preserve the Kalkspitz, it is particularly suitable for storage. According to Christoph Hoch's philosophy, the Kalkspitz is a combination of different grape varieties and lots that impart earthy and fruity tastes. The wine is bone-dry with a maximum alcohol content of 11.5% by volume and carbonation pressure below 3 bar. It is characterised by a crisp acidity that integrate with creamy yeasty components. It pairs well well with cheese, white meat, fish, and vegetables.
