Michael Andert was born into a large family and grew up on a farm with mixed agriculture, livestock and viticulture and learned to respect his family, his animals and the associated work. Today, as winemaker, this respect has deepened even more. Biodynamic farming started in 2003 with Demeter certificate awarded in 2007. The 11 vineyard parcels are spread over 11 plots.
A burnished sunset of a wine, its deep hues were captivating, glowing, almost throbbing with primal energy. The nose is (sweet) meaty and a little bit smoky, the palate is smooth and almost velvety with suggestions of pink grapefruit, yet also salty with a bitter almond note on the finish. Aromatics are initially reserved, then gently exude a kind of warmth as of orchard fruit baked with sweet spices in the oven.
Definitely one of the top wines in his category.
