Quantum Winery, Derr Herr Baumann 2018Regular price $36.00 Save $-36.00
“Quantum” sums up winemaker’s Florian Schuhmann’s efforts to keep the production of his winemaking to a minimum. He farms just four hectares in total with no plans to expand. The small scale reiterates his goal to stay involved in production as much as possible. In a place where mass-produced wines are at the forefront, Florian continues to focus on old vines and abandoned vineyards in eastern Austria.
This bottle of Portugiese is actually a widely planted grape variety in both Germany and Austria. It’s light in alcohol, harvested very early, and exudes freshness and vibrancy. The fermentation does take place in old oak then finishes in stainless steel. This bottle and its hilarious label is named “Herr Baumann” because its fruit is sourced from his good friend, Christopher Bauer. The name is a collaboration of both their names: Bauer + Schuhmann= Herr Bauman.
