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. Grapes were hand picked, with maceration for up to 24 hours and spontaneous fermentation. 60% aged in 500 litres tonneaux barrels with 40% in stainless steel and left for an 18 months on the lees. This is a fresh wine, with a pale golden yellow colour, a nutty character combined with some smoke and clear citrus aromas. On the palate it’s elegant, mineral and with a creamy finish.
