Fermentation occurs spontaneously in neutral oak with indigenous yeast. Inspired by the white Tokaji wines, the Schmitt Voodoo Doll is aged for 12 months in neutral oak sous voile , during which the flor yeast form a film over the surface of the wine. The Voodoo Doll is bottled without fining or filtration and with no added SO2.
Tasting Notes: The Voodoo Doll has placed it's hex; we can't get enough of this new release from Bianka and Daniel. In the glass, the wine is a marvelous, golden hued shade of orange. With intoxicating notes of nutmeg, citrus zest, apricot and a hint of cinnamon, the Voodoo Doll shows the great potential of skin contact Riesling.
