About: Martin Wörner is based in Rheinhessen and farms organically (not certified) on sandstone soils. Having previously staged with Tom Lubbe (of Matassa) and Steph and Eddie at Gut Oggau in Burgenland, 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.
Complex orange, rather cloudy and lemony with slight bitter finish.
