Viticulture

A small parcel of estate vineyards, just .8 ha, sits on southward facing slopes at elevation of 120-140m above sea level. The vineyard site is classified within the Grosses Gewächs designation. The vines are cane pruned and range in age from 30-35 years old. At harvest, grapes are picked by hand and produce a yield of 30 hl/ha - the maximum allowance for a GG wine is 50 hl/ha.

Soil

Deep loam and loess with a gritty structure.

Vinification

Intense manual selection takes place when the picked grapes arrive to the presshouse, then the selected grapes are whole-cluster pressed to release their juice. Fermentation takes place over 2-3 weeks using ambient yeasts. Then, the wine spends seven months aging on its fine lees. Total sulphur at bottling: 128 mg/l

Aging

The wine is aged for 1 year in large oak barrels - a requirement of Grosses Gewächs wine is that the wine cannot be sold until the year following harvest, and no earlier than September 1st of that year.
