Fragrant, juicy, engaging.
Based in Baden, Germany, Shelter Winery is comprised of husband and wife team Hans-Bert Espe and Silke Wolf; the wine, Lovely Lilly is named after their dog. This estate is farming organically and native yeasts are used for fermentation in open top vessels. The winery started up in an old Canadian Air Force hangar; the Shelter building.
It's a fragrant one--cherry and raspberry, cedar and dried flowers, cranberry and sweet spice aromas dominate the nose. It's dry and juicy with high-toned red berry flavours woven with tealeaf and spice. It's an engaging wine with good classic pinosity.
