Young winemakers from former E. Germany making super cool skin contact Silvaner.  If you like Flor, you'll love this! Aromatic, textured and oh so drinkable.  pink grapefruit, citrus pith, pretty salmon-colored. High acid, bone dry, low alcohol. (Picked early at only 11% ABV). 

the folks at Kingston Wine Co. wrote this great essay on K&E and this Silvaner: 


-100% very old vine Silvaner from Saale-Unstrut

-very cool climate (51st parallel puts this part of Germany equal with locales such as Calgary, London, and Montreal)

-organic and biodynamic farming

-couple has a collection of tiny plots totaling 3.5 hectares currently

-a few days of skin contact in small basket press

-fermented and matured in neutral Harz Germany sourced oak (a flor often occurs)

-to a degree, reduction is encouraged in the winemaking
