Do you also have Federweißer (new wine) in England now?
« on: August 19, 2012, 04:51:04 AM »
Here in Germany the season for the new wine 2012 has just started!  :)

For those, who do not know, what "Federweißer" is - here is an explanation:  :)

Quote


Federweißer (from German Feder = feather + weiß = white, from the appearance of the suspended yeast), is an alcoholic beverage, typically 4 percent alcohol by volume, but it's not uncommon to see Federweißer in the region of 10 percent alcohol by volume. It is the product of fermented freshly pressed grape juice, known as must. The term in principle includes all stages of fermentation from must to finished wine.

It is known as Suser, Sauser, Neuer Süßer, or Junger Wein (young wine) in Southwest Germany, Switzerland and South Tyrol, Fiederwäissen in Luxembourg, Sturm (storm, from the cloudy appearance) in Austria and Bavaria, Neuer Wein (new wine) in the Palatinate, Bremser in Franconia, burčiak in Slovakia, burčák in Czech Republic, bourru or vernache in France, must in Romania, "მაჭარი" (machari) in Georgia.

Note that, in Switzerland, this same term has a completely different meaning. There, Federweisser refers to a white wine made from red grapes, typically pinot noir.

I prefer to wait for the first hard frosts for Eiswein... a touch more alcohol and a deeper flavour AFAIC.

Eiswein is the other extreme.  :)

I like the new wine = Federweißer.

But I am not sure, whether it exists at all in England.

That was in 2013.

Now the season for the  2014 Federweiße has come and gone.
