The first vintage of this wine was 2015 and it was intended to show that Sylvaner is capable of something extra. Especially if it is made on the skins. In terms of balance between the size of the berries, the quality of juice per kilo of grapes and the thickness of the skins, Sylvaner is arguably the most balanced grape variety in their portfolio.
Delicate fruity notes on the nose, on the palate much more intensity with a rounded texture balanced by acidity and minerality (which Sylvaner expressed particularly well on these soils).
Hand harvested grapes are destemmed and go through a 4 week maceration in fiberglass tanks. Indigenous yeasts used with ambient temperatures for fermentation in oak barrels. Natural malolactic fermentation occurs before being bottled unfined, unfiltered with a very small addition of SO2.
