The single vineyard wines are selected and carefully processed from only the oldest and best vineyards. The autonomy of traditional grape varieties, combined with the soil and the layers, creates wines that reflect their expression and maturity including all the peculiarities of their origin. These are precise and exciting wines with unique minerality through limestone and limestone rocks. Until the harvest partly very different conditions. Not all locations were equally affected by the summer drought. However, almost everywhere there were first-class ripened grapes with high must weights. September turned out to be an almost perfect harvest month: during the day usually pleasant warmth, at night it cooled down, so that the grapes remained largely healthy and were able to develop intensive aromas. Hand-picked grapes, whole cluster pressing, spontaneous fermentation at 16-18°C with wildyeast, maturation in stainless steel. High complexity and elegance with a fantastic minerality with aromas of wild lavender. On the palate the rich sweetness is diminished by a nice acidity, which makes the wine wonderfully fresh and supplemented by a
light minerality. A perfect companion to more lighter type of desserts or fruits, but also a pure treat on it’s own! organic.
