Organic wine processing
The grapes are harvested by hand in maximum ripeness and carefully selected simultaneously. The berries were separated from panicles and pressed immediately, followed by the alcoholic fermentation. This is stopped by adding pure grape alcohol once a residual sugar content in the wine 85 to 90 g / l is reached. Now a unique ripening period follows, during which the wine is stocked in only partially filled barrels which spend one year outdoors, where it is exposed to changing temperatures of the seasons, then superimposed another 2 years in temperature-controlled cellars before it is bottles in the fourth year after the vintage.
