The 2019 Monkey Morio Hanewald-Schwerdt is a fabulous, fun summer wine from Stefan Schwerdt. It’s made with a now unfashionable hybrid cross called Morio Muskat, which despite having no direct relationship to Muscat it is very similar in character. Wonderfully perfumed grapey nose with elderflower, apple and hints of pineapple.
The family owned and operated estate Hanewald-Schwerdt was founded in 1955 in Leistadt. Today Thomas Hanewald & Stephan Schwerdt have taken over the family business which was established by their grandfather. The secret of their handcrafted wines is a unique limestone reef which dominates all the sites around Leistadt which really is a hidden treasure off the beaten track. The vines are old and surrounded by a protected natural resort in the shade of the Haardt mountains.
