Wine
Young generation. Fresh and lively, vibrant, and alway easy to drink. A wine for people of today.

Grape varieties

Pinot Blanc 50 %, Chardonnay 30 %, Sauvignon Blanc 20 %

Winemaking

Grapes were de-stemmed and left to macerate in the press for six hours to leach out aroma substances and body from the skins. Fermentation took place in oak and stainless steel tanks with yeasts naturally occurring in the vineyard. The young wine was subsequently matured on the fine lees for six months to enable the aromas and flavour to evolve.

Site and soil

The grapes come partly from our more recent vineyards in Mareit and partly from our suppliers, who also work to biodynamic principles and have certification as organic growers.

Bottled

33.600 bottles were filled in March 2020.

Vintage

2019 was not a year for volume, but in terms of quality it was very good and in some cases excellent. The new shoots appeared early, but cold and wet weather in April and May held back vegetation growth to such an extent that it became a late year. A long ripening period in combination with a golden autumn finally created the conditions for a great vintage. The grapes grown on our more recently planted La Manina sites were harvested in the middle of September. The yield was 60 hl per hectare.
