The Andert barrel cellar is no-tech rather than lo-tech. There is no electricity, so tasting is done by candle light! The wines are made naturally with varying amounts of skin contact and maturation is in old barriques and 500 litre barrels. Manual harvest, destemmed grapes, fermented in open-topped containers, and maceration 5 -11 days before pressing. Ferments are with indigenous yeast and are ambient (the garage door is opened or closed). The wine matures gently and the goes through natural malo, a light filtration, no fining – with sulphur only added at bottling The Pamhogna white is 55% Rulander (Pinot Gris), 40% Neuberger and 5% Weissburgunder. It has an intense golden-yellow colour, a lovely herbal fragrance and requires some breathing before all the elements harmonise – from the exotic white pear and pineapple fruit aromas to the refreshing acid, fine structure and a gentle clasp of tannin. If you love it as much as we do, it's also available in magnums!
