Article: Little Crab Rheingau Riesling Wermut
Country: Germany
Alcohol: 17%
Characteristics: This unusual creation is based on a hand read Rheingau Riesling from the steep layer and aromatized with regional botanicals from the native country of the distiller like camomile and wormwood as well as Sicilian oranges. The hand-graded herbs are added on the wine directly and give in their flavours in a process lasting for several weeks in the high-grade steel tank. The ingredients are removed at the end of this process. The vermouth reaches the completion by the bonus of select, handmade distillates and with a discreet sweetening.
Colour: Pale rosé
Flavour: Warm and radiantly clear. A smell which reminds of tepid summer's evenings.
Taste: The vermouth tastes fresh and warm, has a clear Riesling character and is impressive because of the balanced interplay of winy minerality, fine bitterness and aromatic herb notes.
Special: Unfiltered, since the wine always loses flavour and complexity at a filtration.

The bottling in small batches, locking and labelling: Work done by hand. Every bottle is a unicum, marked with batch and lot by hand.
Drink recommendation: Pure, on the rocks or as classic cocktail.
