Wine maker notes
Satyr is our sparkling wine made from 100% Riesling grapes, and is only produced during exceptional vintages. We believe our Satyr is unique in the world of sparkling wine production in that there is no additional sugar used in the making of this wine. In traditional Champagne and sparkling wine production, crystal sugar (from sugar cane or sugar beets) is added to the wine at two -- and sometimes three - stages of the production. This addition of crystal sugar moves the finished wine away from being a natural product made from grapes. With our Satyr, you get pure Riesling flavour, not some sugar beet/Riesling hybrid flavour.

Producer
Located in the small community of Grosskarlbach, Pfalz, Germany the Lingenfelder family has been producing wine for 13 generations. Owner and winemaker Rainer-Karl Lingenfelder takes a minimalist approach to winemaking indigenous yeasts are used, malolactic fermentation is blocked and he doesn’t fine nor stabilize his wines. Rainer uses a few large 100-year-old barrels to age some of his wines. These neutral barrels no longer impart any oak flavor but lend texture and a slight creaminess. He also uses some small barriques for the Spatburgunder. Most of the oak barrels are made with German oak. The 30 acre estate is planted with Riesling (40%), Spatburgunder (20%), Scheurebe (10%) with additional parcels of Muller Thurgau, Dornfelder, Silvaner, Kerner and Portugieser.
