In the westernmost corner of the Franconian wine region (officially called Franken) the Fürst Family have been making wine since 1638. In 1979 Paul and Monika Fürst built the new estate amidst the vineyards and in 2007 their son Sebastian joined to help manage the property.
The quality and struture of the wines is ensured by minimal intervention in the vineyards, reduced yields and in the cellar the white wines are pressed gently, fermented and aged in both barrels and stainless steel tanks for 6 - 12 months.
Lowtech vinification assures each wine gets the necessary time to develop.
Pur Mineral is made of grapes from the first harvest across all of the family vineyards and it is almost exclusively from Erste Lage locations.
The aromatics show a delicate mineral base, citrus and stone fruits with a squeeze of fresh apple and a herbal-vegetal under tone. On the palate the fruit shows off a little tart but juicy. The wine is graceful and deliciously lively.
