- In stock, ready to ship
Moritz is a fourth generation winemaker based in the Rheinhessen region of Germany. He is only the second generation to bottle his own wines after his father. He farms about 2 hectares out of 14 on the family’s estate. His style takes a lot of inspiration from Champagne, Jura, and Burgundy which should give you an insight to why his wines taste and feel like they do.
The ‘0 Ohm’ wines could be called his estate wines that take their names from a measure of electrical resistance, which these being set to 0 let the electricity rip! This is a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc with a few days of maceration on their skins, but don’t expect an orange wine. It gets 10 months of aging in barrel resulting in a wine that’s full of depth, complexity, and seductive tension. There’s a lactic quality on both the nose and palate, a bit of butterscotch, zippy lemon pith, ripping acid giving it generous lift and cut. Jeremy Hernandez
