The younger generation of winemakers in Germany is definitely going through a resurgence of new ideas, farming in a more conscious way, and giving forgotten, or let’s say, not ‘fashionable’ varieties a chance to shine. Maximilian Baumann is definitely one of those growers, when we first heard of him and his tireless work in his village Dertingen in Franken we knew we needed to taste his wines and give him a chance here in the UK market. And we are so glad we did! Max comes from a winemaking family, and given his curious personality and a keenness to learn more about organic farming and natural winemaking, he found himself working with some real exciting growers in Austria and New Zealand.
He works on a 3.5 hectare of land all organically farmed. The Blanc is a blend of Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner and Gewürztraminer. We love the playfulness that you see in the Blanc, part skin, part free run juice come together to give it a real moreish quality. A fleshy mouthfeel with good ripeness and a clean, zingy finish! And like in all of his wines, there is an underlying juciy, easy drinking quality but they always finish on a precise, high mineral note. Unfiltered, unfined and no added SO2.
