The philosophy here is to craft a modern white wine with a Burgundy like balance made from the varieties we inherited. Grapes for this blend are collected at full maturity, golden yellow. Blend is composed of 80% Kerner (a cross between Riesling and Trollinger), and Riesling (20%). Kerner juice was barrel fermented in acacia wood (300L and 500 L, 3rd fill) and kept on gross lees for 8 months. Riesling (20%) was tank fermented and also kept on gross lees for the same amount of time before blending.
Dry and warm summer season clearly drove the characteristic of the vintage and final wine style with low yields (up to 30% lower as usual) resulted in rich and concentrated wines greatly balanced by refreshing acidity thanks to the cold conditions in September.
