Peter Wetzer Kekfrankos Silberberg

$40.98

In 2007 Peter Wetzer purchased five different vineyards around the town of Sopron, in the northwest part of Hungary. Born into a winemaking family, he was driven to make wines naturally with minimal intervention. Peter works Kékfrankos on five different vineyard sites that add up to 2.5 hectares. He additionally has 1 hectare of furmint vines planted near the Ság volcano, and another hectare of vines from a few different varieties like Pinot Noir.

“This is one of the most spectacular vineyards I’ve ever seen: Silberberg really is a Silver Mountain. Sadly, it is sparsely planted anymore, most grape growers long abandoned the steep low-yielding hill in favor of flatter, easier to farm sites. The vines that are still there are well over fifty years old and have their roots deep in schist and quartz. Higher density plantings keep yields perfectly in check. The wine is fermented in open-top wooden vats with 5% whole-clusters. After being pressed off the wine ages in neutral barrels until the following summer.” Juice imports
