Description

Compared to the optimal vintage 2018 with its unbelievably high yields, 2019 is clearly below average in this respect. Nationwide, this meant a 13% lower yield. 2019 made it difficult for the winegrowers in many places with frost on the one hand and sunburn, great heat and drought on the other. Despite the difficult conditions, 2019 produced incredibly good wines. The grapes for the Tonneau Weissburgunder come from the core vineyards of Bechtheim and were selectively harvested by hand. After a maceration period of about 10 hours, the mash fermented spontaneously 100% in Tonneau wooden barrels. Stored for a long time – 1.5 years on the full lees, half a year on the fine lees until bottling. Light straw yellow colour with a full-bodied, round and nicely floral nose. Palate is harmonious and opulent at the same time with a fine melt on the palate, well-integrated wood aromas and a fantastic long finish. Certified Vegan and Organic.
