The Weinschwärmer (the German name of the small elephant hawk-moth) is a blend of Grauburgunder (also known as Pinot Gris) and Riesling. The varieties grow next to each other on a stand-alone limestone hill close to the winery.
The Grauburgunder comes with a beautifully blue/pink colored skin. To extract that color and fruitiness the bunches are destemmed and the crushed berries are fermented on the skins for about 10 days. The last picking day usually is the Riesling, which gets pressed directly. Both wines age in a big old oak barrel before they get racked and blended the following summer to stay in a tank for another six months before being bottled.
The idea of the wine is to have a very ripe, rather low acid Grauburgunder providing color and – depending on the vintage – red fruit flavors. 20-30% Riesling jump in that gap with its razor-sharp acidity adding another layer of complexity.
