This is rhubarb yoghurt masquerading as red wine. Really unique and a wine that is sadly never to be made again as the Brand Bros decided to rip up the vines, finding the really rare Cabernet Mitos grape variety really hard to work with.
Grapes: Cabernet Mitos
Place: Pfalz Germany
Fifth-generation winemakers Daniel and Jonas Brand took over the family winery from their father Jürgen in 2014 – with his support they expanded from 12 to 18ha and transitioned production to fully organic and natural. In this year, Jonas produced his first 900 bottles of natural wine, from an old-vine Sylvaner vineyard; 2/3 was undrinkable. Not phased by this, the brothers now have the whole estate under organic cultivation and are producing a large amount of wine with no added sulphur.
