about the harvest: Botrytis rot in Riesling vineyards is always a threat and 2014, with its late summer rains, proved to be one of those botrytis years. Bunch selection when picking was key this year, making sure we only picked the healthiest fruit.
Yield: 7t/ha

in the cellar : The grapes were destemmed and left on the skins for 6 hours. Only the free-run juice from the press was used for fermentation in the stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was stopped at a sugar level of 12g/l by cooling down the wine to 5˚ C.
