Oliver Zeter Sauvignon Blanc Fumé 2019 75cl 13% ABV
Oliver Zeter Sauvignon Blanc Fume, Pfalz, Germany
This White Wine undergoes wild yeast fermentation, maturation in new French oak, and extended lees contact to give it a totally unique character.
Brothers Christian and Oliver Zeter bottled their first vintage in 2007 and have already earned themselves a place in the wine world.
Oliver Zeter is one of the rising stars of the Pfalz. His passion for Sauvignon Blanc manifested itself in the planting of seven clones on soil that was perfectly suited to the variety.
The drinking bear that adorns the label comes from the quill of a well known Pfalz artist named Otto Dill, a friend of Oliver’s great grandfather Walter Baer (German for bear).
On one occasion in 1933 Walter was unable to meet his friends for a regular glass of wine or two and the artist sent the sketch on a postcard to his friend Walter the bear, and the postcard was signed by all the friends present that day.
Oliver has the postcard in his kitchen. He declared that the bear had been with him all his life and when he made wine he would go on the label.
