Andi Weigand, Franken Silvaner, 2019

$33.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
60+ year old vines, organically farmed by Andi and his father. Fermented in big barrels with no fining, filtration or SO2. A super chuggable wine! A whiff of tasty reduction when it first opened, and slightly spritzy making even more refreshing. The texture is very Chenin Blanc like, with both a dense center and a lift, not to sharp on around the edges and cool 12% abv, mineral, salty and a touch of citrus. A very good job for Andi's second vintage.

Andi Weigand

Andi produces the newest wines to hit the American shores from Germany and encompasses everything we love about “New German Wine”. Friends Michael and Melanie of 2Naturkinder introduced him to his American importer, Jenny & Francois, just in time for the publication of this blog.

He hails from Iphöfen (pronounced like iphone) Franken and farms 60+ year old Silvaner, on the Kronsberg slope. Andi’s ambition and enthusiasm quickly convinced his father to convert their vines to organics, which they did in 2018. They prize their east, west and north facing vineyards as they allow for lower alcohol and more subtly, rarely do wines deviate from 12% abv.

2019 is Andi’s second vintage which he fermented in large neutral barrels with no fining, filtration or sulphur additions. We’ve only got to experience the one bottle, but it was fantastic, edgy with a chenin texture, meaning both broad and sharp at the same time with a light spritz from captured CO2. Completely chuggable, clean and a very exciting addition to our German wine section.
