The Spindler family has been making wine in Germany since the 1620s, when Sontag Spindler left Burgundy to move to Pfalz. This was at the end of the Thirty Years War, but, seeing the long view, he began purchasing vineyards. He was able to acquire one of Germany’s most revered parcels, the Kirchenstück, which received the highest valuation in the land in 1828. The estate was split among three Spindler brothers around that time, and Weingut Heinrich Spindler took its place among the great estates of Forst, and is now run by Markus Spindler, Heinrich’s great-grandson. This trocken (dry) bottling is a great introduction to Spindler's terroir in the Pfalz, and more specifically, the complex terroir of Forst. Organically farmed grapes are sourced from Spindler’s vineyards in Friedelsheim, Niederkirchen, and Forst, and are fermented in stainless steel, then aged on the lees for 5-6 months. This offering is bright and pure, with clean stone fruit flavors, zesty citrus, and hints of peach blossom. Certified organic.
