We proudly present the newest addition to our portfolio: Laura Seufert's 2019 Anarchie. Idiosyncratic, structured and complex, yet juicy, energetic and drinkable, this skin-macerated Silvaner is one seriously impressive wine. The grapes come from the Julius-Echter-Berg, a sloped Grand Cru vineyard outside the Franconian town of Iphofen, where the vines root deep in the region's famous Gipskeuper soil (grey-brown marl).

The fruit was hand-picked, spontaneously fermented and macerated on its skins for 4 weeks, before being aged on its full lees for 12 months in old 600L barrels. It was then bottled unfiltered and unfined, with a minute dose of sulphites, and aged a year in bottle. It's a wine made with attention to detail, love of experimentation and courage - bursting with lengthy exotic, zesty and spicy notes, balanced by polished tannins, crisp acidity and a ton of depth. A truly mistifying bottle that will keep you coming back for more.

Based in the village of Iphofen, Laura is a fourth-generation winemaker whose family has long been producing authentic wines with strong character. The natural way of working is of supreme importance to them - live and let live is their proud motto - treating nature with respect and disturbing it as little as possible. They work without pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilizers, while sowing their vineyards with herbs and grasses to create a habitat for bees, earthworms and other beneficial organisms.

Laura began her apprenticeship as a winemaker in 2007, learning and working at various wineries in Rheingau, Ticino, South Tyrol and New Zealand. She studied viticulture & oenology at the university of Geisenheim, before joining her family estate in 2017 and launching her own line of natural wines - combining Franconian tradition with a drive for experimentation. Her bottlings are a pure, adventurous and honest expression of the region, made with a deep love for the natural environment.
