Katla Wines | Queendom - 2022
Origin: Germany - Regions of Rheinhessen and Pfalz
Grapes: 50% Pinot Gris, 40% Dornfelder, 10% Riesling
Process: The Pinot Gris grapes were macerated for three weeks in a semi-carbonic process. The Dornfelder and Riesling grapes were directly pressed. All maceration took place separately, and all processes were carried out in stainless steel tanks. The wine was bottled with 7g residual sugar.
Flavor profile: Queendom 2022 is a super light red sparkling wine. It brings to mind flavors of lingonberries and cranberries, with a hint of cherry Capri Sun notes.

About the producer: Katla Wines is a natural wine producer from Germany known for its unique approach to experimentation. The owner, Jasmin Swan, produced her first vintage in 2019 in Bauneberg, then started working from the cellar of fellow German producer Staffelter Hof. Her wines are made from a combination of her own Riesling grown in the Mosel as well as grapes she purchases from producers in Germany and France with whom she has a good relationship. This allows her to travel more and gather knowledge to creatively reflect in her wines. She now has a cellar in Wöllstein, in Rheinhessen. The wines of Jasmin are energetic with a strong, direct, honest personality. She works closely with Jan Klein from Staffelter Hof and many other talented winemakers in Germany and France.
The grapes used in the Queendom 2022 wine come from vineyards that are either in the process of becoming organically certified or are already fully organically certified. The Pinot Gris grapes come from Eckelsheim in Rheinhessen (from Andi Mann), the Dornfelder grapes also come from Eckelsheim in Rheinhessen (from Nicklas Rückrich), and the Riesling grapes come from Lambsheim in Pfalz (from Lukas Krauss).
