Christophe Lindenlaub Elefanta Orange
Christophe Lindenlaub comes from a long line of winemakers in Alsace with the family growing grapes here since the 18th century. The vineyards have been worked organically since 2009 and the wines made fully naturally since 2014. All grapes are handpicked, fermented with indigenous yeasts and bottled without any additions or filtration. Though all unique, Christophe's wines invariably have great energy and tension with nervy acidity and vibrant fruit.
Elefanta Orange is Auxerrois macerated on skins for 2 and a half weeks. An exotic, complex wine with souk spice, dried fruit and nut aromas leading to a weighty but surprisingly fresh palate.
