Herrenhof Lamprecht Sand & Kalk 2019

$21.99
Godfrey Lamprecht purchased 9 hectares of hillside that once belonged to Vorau Abbey. Monks farmed vineyards on this hillside as recently as the late 19th Century. As all of the vineyards had long since been uprooted, Godfrey and his family replanted 1 hectare of vineyards per year. The soils are composed of calcareous sandstone. Organic farming is practiced following a term he call Freestyle Farming, with extensive use of cover crops and manual harvests. In the cellar minimal intervention is the norm with all wines fermented on natural yeast in seasoned barrels, most of which are sourced from his local Forrest. All the wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfur. Sand and Kalk Pinot Blanc is the entree into the world of Herrenhof. The grape is ideally suited to the calcareous and sandstone soils. The wine is macerated for a short 6 hours on the skins, is fermented with natural yeast in 600L oak barrels. Bottled unfiltered with a small addition of SO2.
