“Cat-silver” is what the Strohmeiers call the silicate stones with very thin layers sparkling on the soil of all their vineyards. A perfect name for wine which shows all varieties of grapes and vineyards they work with.
All grapes found in across all the Strohmeier vineyards, including some PiWi hybrids. White grapes (Sauvignon blanc, Pinot blanc, Chardonnay, Bronner, Muscaris, Büten-Muskateller) as well red grapes (Souvignier gris) and dark grapes (Zweigelt, Blauer Wildbacher, Cabernet Jura, Merlot, Rösler, Regent).
A blend of skin-fermented and direct-press grapes. Spontaneous alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in wooden casks. The wine is bottled after 8 months (= early by Strohmeier standards), with a small dose of sulfur (15 mg/l). No fining or filtration.
A hazy fun co-ferment. Fruity, with distinct tannic structure, good liveliness.
