Shell limestone, Keuper soils. This is a blend of the top three planted varieties in Franconia; Bacchus, Müller-Thurgau and Silvaner. From three separate locations; Kitzingen, Iphofen & Theilheim. The three grape varieties going into the blend were made separately but similarly: grapes destemmed but not all berries crushed to get a light carbonic effect. Skin contact for a week, pressed and fermented & aged in steel (Silvaner, Bacchus) and old oak (Müller-Thurgau).
