The 2016 vintage produced numerous surprises. The mild spring was succeeded by a frigid April that initially brought growth to a standstill. Constant hard work in the vineyard ensured that the situation was kept under control. A changeable start to the summer was followed by sunny days in late August and September. The grape harvest began in mid-September. The white wines are distinguished by a pleasant aroma supported by a well-structured acidity, while the red wines are marked by their powerful fragrance and matching.
Whole-cluster pressing of ripe and healthy grapes, natural must clarification, fermentation at a controlled temperature of 18-20 °C, 4-month ageing on the fine lees in stainless steel.
Steep, sloping vineyards with southerly and easterly expositions between 300 and 450 meters above sea level. Loamy, chalky gravel, heat-retaining and well-drained soils
This wine pairs perfectly with mushroom dishes, fish and seafood. We also recommend it as an aperitif.
