Grape varieties

Pinot Blanc 57 %, Chardonnay 30 %, Sauvignon Blanc 13 %

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.

Vintage

2021 was a relatively late year. The harvest began on September 13 with Sauvignon Blanc in Lieben Aich and ended on October 20 with Cabernet Sauvignon in Manincor. The ripening period in particular was char-acterised by almost perfect weather, with sunny days and clear nights where it cooled down properly. So, the year 2021 is all about balance. Physiological ripeness, sugar ripeness and acidity are in an optimal balance. Ripe fruit, cool character and moderate alcohol characterise the vintage. The grapes grown on our more recently planted La Manina sites were har-vested in the middle of September. The yield was 62 hl per hectare.

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.

Bottled

37,000 bottles were filled.
