Weiss “Portugeezer”

Weingut Staffelter Hof, Weiss "Portugeezer", Mosel, Germany 2020
{organic} Arinto, Fernão Pires

Featuring Portuguese varieties transplanted onto the unlikely slopes of Germany’s Mosel, this breathtakingly bizarre beast comes straight out of the cabinet of curiosities. This “natural wine” is cloudy with a bold, citrusy attack and a funky finish. Jan Klein’s experimental planting of Fernão Pires and Arinto was partially inspired by a desire to see what increasing temperatures in German vineyards might render possible, and the name, “Portu-Geezer,” is a play on words, referencing the unrelated central European variety, Blauer Portugieser. Silly Jan!
Serving Suggestion: Vietnamese vermicelli w/ grilled pork, shrimp, lemongrass, basil, & fish sauce. Savory red bean rice dumplings.
