For four generations now, the Frey winery is located in the heart of the village Ober-Flörsheim, the highest elevated municipality in south-western Rheinhessen. Philipp and Christopher Frey, the youngest generation of the family are now in charge to operate the winery, beginning from the vineyard to the bottling. Since 2013 the grape-growing follows the EU-guidelines for organic viticulture. Near-natural fermentation, initiated by yeast from the vineyard and ageing oak barrels, barriques and stainless steel characterise the wines. The estate grown wines are organically farmed.
Grapes are hand harvested from vineyards that are farmed organically. The Rheinhessen is one of Germany’s driest regions (annual rainfall of just 500mm). The region is protected by the Palatinate mountains, protecting it from humid winds and storms. The grapes undergo a cold maceration of 12 hours. Fermentation in stainless steel tank is spontaneous, with ambient yeasts.
Floral with an easygoing demeanour. Vibrant and racy with notes of fresh apple, pear, and citrus.
This wine pairs well with mild cheese and fresh seafood dishes
