The Kalkspitz is a sparkling wine made in the Méthode ancestrale, also known as „Pétillant naturel" or „Pet Nat". This is the most natural method to produce sparkling wine with the least intervention of the winemaker. Here, the fermenting must which still contains unfermented sugar is bottled. The fermentation process is completed in the bottle; the wine will be degorged, but still keeps a slight cloudiness.
According to Christoph Hoch’s philosophy the Kalkspitz is a combination of different grape varieties and lots, of earthy and fruity tastes. The wine is bone-dry with an alcohol content of 10,5% vol. and a carbone pressure below 3 bar.
