Tasting Notes: The perfect wine for lazy weekend afternoons. Franz & Christine wanted to make a “house wine” that involved all different vineyards and varieties that they farm. This includes the recently (2015) planted hybrid, disease resistant varieties such as Muscaris, Souvignier Gris, Bronner and a Swiss clone of Cabernet. Catsilver refers to the shining silica stones that are found throughout their vineyards. All the white grapes undergo a maceration on the skins and the red grapes are directly pressed, before all being aged in used oak barrels for eight months.
