White- 2019 Staffelter Hof 'Little Bastard', Mosel, Germany
A wine that has developed a loyal following and for good reason. It gets its name from the unusual blend of Riesling, Sauv Blanc, Müller Thurgau and Muscat.
The result is a mind-opening but joyous wine - it is cloudy, a little fizzy, a little wild, has aromas of flowers and apricot yoghurt, with mouth watering acidity, and a unique zestiness that pervades from start to finish.
Made by Jan Klein, the latest generation at the helm on this historical estate which has been in the family since 1805, but operating as a winery since 862...! Jan started to produce a special range of wines with no added sulphites in 2014, a range that has now expanded to nearly ten singular wines.
