Vintage 2022

After a winter with little precipitation, the year began ordinary. From the end of April, the weather was mainly humid. The total amount of precipitation was not noticeably higher, but there were constant small rain showers. This made things particularly difficult in the vineyard, especially with regard to the fungal disease downy mildew. Precise foliage work and targeted plant protection were very important. Wet weather also set in during the ripening phase, which meant that Grüner Veltliner in particular had to wait. An Indian summer at the beginning of October was still able to drive the final ripening. The harvest had to be carried out very precisely and took time. The grapes were carefully selected, and rotten berries were picked out. The bottom line is that it is somewhat less alcoholic, but with beautiful harmony.
