Notes from the Importer: Enderle & Moll had never even HEARD of orange wine when they first started fifteen years ago but as red wine specialists it seemed like the skins were there for a reason—directly pressing and moving on is foreign in this cellar. Thus a full decade ahead of the trend, here they were in Baden, making a full range of skin contact wines totally unfiltered and bottled in clear glass—just doing their thing honestly and without pretense.

The ‘Pur’ bottling sees a bit more skins than the other wines this vintage, 5 days of maceration before pressing into barrel and steel where 40% of the skins are added back in for the full elevage. Totally exuberant in aroma, my mind goes to North African spices, perfumed ripe melon, papaya and the full gamut of grapes. This is almost luxurious in aromatics if not texture, so clear and fresh.

For all the “orange-wine-ness” and the broader, more four-square reputation of Müller-Thurgau, these wines are pretty damn lithe and airy. Next to a lot of German wine, even Riesling, from the southern haunts of Germany, these are lean and mineral and wow—even delicately refreshing.

It’s hard not to think of Clos Roche Blanche as a comparison—these kinds of under-the-radar affordable wines that are farmed impeccably and made honestly. Wines that should be treasured for their simple clarity and over delivering on their promise, trends and orange wines be damned.
