For this grape lambik, we co-fermented freshly-pressed-shortly-skin-macerated Dornfelder grape juice for a bit more than three months with young lambik in a 50/50 cut. The final fruit intensity is 523 grams of Dornfelder per litre of finished grape lambik. These grapes come from Wijndomein Hoenshof in the pretty village of Hoepertingen in the beautiful province of Limburg, Belgium.
The inspiration for these grape lambics comes forth from our love for high quality (natural) wines and our respect for wineries with vision. Add to that the creativity of a passionate team and the warm encounters with winemakers-friends, and the idea for a grape lambik series was born. Besides, it is a continuation of what Armand has done long before with macerations of Pinot, Chardonnay and Malvasia varieties...
