Christian Binner - Si Rose

CHRISTIAN BINNER

To say that this is a unique wine would be an understatement… a multi-vintage blend of old vine Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris, on limestone soil. 60% of this wine is from the 2015 vintage, macerated for 8 months(!) and the remainder form 2016 macerated for 8 days, blended, then bottled in 2017. All of this done with indigenous yeasts, zero corrections and zero sulfites. A Herculean feat no doubt, but one that comes out smelling…. Like a rose. There is so much humour, and life in this wine and just looking a this makes me smile. Drinking it, even more so!
