All Riesling Vineyards of the estate are situated on the hills north of Langenlois, where a more mineralic soil type can be found, due to the influence of the Bohemian Massif. In a first harvesting session, all premature grapes are selected to be the base for this elegant and fruit-driven Riesling.
The grapes are harvested mostly in morning hours, when it’s still cool outside. Retaining the freshness is one of the main aims for this wine. The whole bunches are gently pressed, settled, racked and brought to fermentation in the naturally cool cellar.
The season started with a very dry spring, that was only interrupted by a cool and wet May. Throughout the summer we experienced some hail on the single vineyards Steinberg and Kittmannsberg, however, we were fortunately spared from bigger damages. Ripeness really accelerated on the back of a sunny and relatively warm late summer. The vintage shows wines with good acidity, yet good ripeness, and therefore we expect a high longevity.
