MARTO WINES

Rheinhessen, Germany

 

Rheinhessen, Germany

Martin Wörner is based in Rheinhessen and farms organically on sandstone soils. Having staged with Tom Lubbe (of Matassa) and Steph and Eddie at Gut Oggau is s good sign your wines will not likely end up in the gross category. 2017 was Marto Wines’ first vintage. Fully invested in natural processes, grapes are hand-harvested.  In the winery indigenous yeast and an ambient ferment are the order of the day, the wines undergo no fining or filtration, and no sulphur is added. Watch this young winemaker, he’s going to be big. 

 

~2021 FRAUEN POWER ~

 FRAUEN POWER!  Alanna Lagamba’s signature German-style Lambrusco!

This is a super fun wine for a warm afternoon, or nibbles on cheese and charcutere.  It’s essentially a fruity, light red with a rounded mouthfeel, yet minimal tannins.

Notes of blackcurrant, grape, cola, fizzy sweets and lime. Ideal to take to the park.

Frauen Power is the most important wine ever made.

~2021 FRAUENPOWER ROSE ~

As if the usual red Frauenpower was not enough, Alanna Lagamba has lifted the bar with her insanely good, brand new Rosé version!

A rosé version of FrauenPower with macerated white grapes, refreshing.  Watermelon, cream soda, herbs, vanilla ice cream kinda vibe.

~2020 Al DENTE ~

This crunchy co-ferment is a blend of 25% Pinot Gris and 75% Pinot Noir grapes that are hand-harvested early from vines grown on sandstone soils. The spontaneously fermenting juice macerates for two weeks before full fermentation and aging in huge old oak barrels for 10 months atop the lees. Unfined, unfiltered with no additional SO2.  12%

~2020 WEISS~

The 2020 is a skin-contact blend of Muller-Thurgau and Riesling and some other grapes added from the field. It offers us notes of orange peel, pineapple, and a touch of ginger… alongside some floral hints keeping it aromatic too.  Delicious, delicate and excellent value, this year it has a really lovely minerality. 10%.

~2020 MANNA~

Light red, single vineyard cuvee. If anything great came out of 2020, it was this wine which turned out really fine. 

Basically in a nut shell, it’s our red version of Weiss. From a heavy clay, limestone soil made with Portuguesier and Scheurebe, this wine is insanely expressive, and it has the same electric energy as the Weiss. Expect notes of red cherry car sweets, mild licorice, wet stone and apple

MANNA 6 x 750ml | SKU #250236  | $29.34

~2021 CRAZY CRAZY~

A sparkling version of the Weiss, from a single vineyard coplanting of Huxel, Würzer & Mueller-Thurgau.
