About Leon Gold x Super Glou Pink Gold Magnum
Leon Gold x Super Glou Pink Gold Magnum is a tart, zippy pet-nat of Trollinger that is the gold standard (pun intended) for mouth-wateringly fresh glou glou juice that will sustain you through the end of summer. Made in a pet-nat style, the wine is spontaneously fermented, and carbonation occurs naturally in bottles. It bursts with notes of pink grapefruit, underripe strawberries, cherries, and wild rose, and the finish will surprise you with a big hit of minerality and a lingering Hubba Bubba dust. It’s always golden hour with this Pink Gold sour.
About Leon Gold
The dream of owning a vineyard arose in Leon’s childhood through his fascination with his neighbors’ vines. He was led via the Bottwartal and the Remstal in the South Palatinate to a biodynamic winery whose agriculture mode shaped him greatly, amplifying his desire to create his own wines. After training as a technician for Viticulture and Oenology at the State Teaching and Research Institute in Weinsberg, Leon returned to his “adopted home,” the Remstal. With the foundation of his winery, a long-cherished childhood dream has come to fruition.
According to the motto “quality arises in the vineyard and not just in the cellar,” a healthy dose of idealism and perseverance is needed to produce a special quality of wine instead of “Goldgräberstimmung” (digging for gold). Knowing the importance of biological cycles and moon phases, Leon chooses to support the wild balance in the vineyard, forgoing synthetic agents and instead using specially prepared compost.
Leon has found his own gold by taking a step back and letting nature run its course. His vines are healthy and abundant, standing on layers of gypsum keuper, red sandstone, Bunte marl, and pebble sandstone. These layers of terroir translate to layers of texture in the glass: the embodiment of independent, living wines.
