  • Blauschiefer means blue slate, and this is one of those wines that's equal parts gossamer oyster-shell minerality and zingy tart fruit—it's all about the acidity, but the wine is still somehow soft.

    It's only 11% ABV, and so refreshing, gulpable, all crystallized lemon and chalk, just a whiff of peach and super-delicate herbs. The floral notes are powdery, and though the wine is precise and acidity-driven, it's not aggressive.

    There's a salinity to this wine—not like seawater but like the salty wind on the beach. Drink it with clams, barely-cooked or cured salmon, arctic char, or prosciutto. You might need two bottles.
