2019 Fledermaus Weiss
Everyone loves a great story, and this wine exists and is dedicated to helping support the dwindling local bat population. Melanie Drese and Michael Völker built a cottage on their property to house the grey, long-eared bat to live and grow their colony. In return, the bats supply a nutrient-rich fertilizer for the vines. Every bottle sold gives a small percentage to the preservation of this rare and beautiful species.
The wine is fresh with roasted almonds and wild honey aromas. It is smoky on the palate and finishes with wonderful citrus and juicy gooseberry flavours.
