Vineyards: The grapes come

from two parcels. One is behind

the winery on terrasses and

sits on loess soils with some

parts of loam. The Grüner

Veltliner from here has good

body, texture, and overall

roundness. The second parcel

is in a plot called ‘Mollands’

and sits on rockier soils (schist/

quartz) which tend to produce

wine that is more linear,

more tense and mineral in

character. Blended together

they complement each other

perfectly.


Vinification: The parcels were

picked at the same time.

Most of the grapes were

whole bunch pressed and

transferred to tank without

racking. Fermentation kicked

off the next day. Meanwhile,

about 20% of the grapes were

fermented separately, on skins

for 5 days, pressed, and then

blended into the other tank

with the rest of the juice where

they finished fermentation

together. Racked once and kept

on fine lees in steel tanks for

8 months. Unfined, unfiltered,

small sulphur addition prior to

bottling.
