Thorsten Melsheimer has been farming organically in the Mosel since 1995 (certified ECOVIN) and became Demeter (biodynamic) certified in 2013. Sparkling wine accounts for 20 percent of Thorsten's production; he's been making serious, elegant Sekt since the early eighties.
We are very excited to offer his Pet-Nat 'Rurale': made from biodynamically-grown Riesling and Johanniter, with no added sulfur. The wine has a lively, creamy mousse with notes of golden and green apple, ginger, orange zest, peach skin and yellow apricot with a lengthy finish. (Tasting notes for 2015 vinetage)
