"Golden-yellow in colour, it has aromas of orchard fruits, wild herbs and white spice. Very drinkable indeed."

Frei Körper Kultur is a great introduction to Bianka and Daniel’s wines. A blend of Scheurebe, Pinot Blanc and Huxelrebe on skins blended with directly pressed Pinot Gris and Ortega, it is aged in fibreglass tanks and filled in a one litre bottle. The Schmitt winery has been in the family for over 230 years with Bianka and Daniel working their 16 hectares for the last decade. They work in full biodynamics which they learned from legendary Alsace vigneron Patrick Meyer and are one of only
80 producers in Germany to be Demeter-certified. (2012 was their first vintage with full certification.) The Rheinhessen is the largest wine growing region in Germany and is largely associated with bulk production. Though in recent years the region’s reputation has begun to shift as a new generation of young, talented growers are working organically in the vineyard, reducing yields and realizing the excellent, undervalued terroir they possess. The focus is being switched away from hybrids and towards Riesling, Sylvaner, Weissburgunder and Chardonnay and a variety of reds with Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder) particularly favoured. The vineyards here are spread across various plots in Flörsheim-Dalsheim, Monsheim and Kriegsheim. Bianka is from Hungary, Daniel is German. They met in 2012 when she was cellar hand in his parent’s winery. Together they have taken over the family winery and are producing excellent natural wines made without additions. Farming biodynamically is essential to their desire to make natural wines, as are long ambient fermentations (in used barrels), variable
skin maceration, lees ageing, minimal handling and bottling without filtration or added sulphur. They are never afraid to experiment, making over a dozen wines.
