These grapes, hand-selected from my finest vineyards, exclusively undergo wild yeast fermentation and maturation in 300 or 500 liter barrels. Following an extended stay on the lees well into the summer, the wines are bottled with neither filtration nor fining. There‘s an undeniable focus on the complexity inherent to their favorite varieties, accentuated with the gentle nuance of barrel aging. Wines of depth, elegance and structure — Slow Wine. A total of seven vineyards in southern Palatinate and Mittelhaardt are planted with seven different Sauvignon Blanc clones. The decisive advantage of this is the various microclimates of the different sites which are beneficial to flavor diversification. The soils in which the grape vines grow are as distinct as the sites themselves.

Training usually occurs as cordon which leads to a grape area that is linear and therefore easier to handle. The vineyards are permanently green
partially due to natural herbs and sowed grass. This SAUVIGNON BLANC comes from our oldest and best vineyards. The best and ripest grapes
were selected in the vineyards for this purpose and were harvested by hand into small 20kg containing baskets. Then the grapes were crushed and
pressed. The juice was immediately transferred to new French oak barrels where the must was spontaneously fermented. Malolactic fermentation
was prevented. Next, the wine was poured into stainless steel tanks along with its fine yeast where it remained until it was bottled in the summer.
Due to the influence of the wood, the wine received both typical Sauvignon Blanc notes as well as a strong finish with slightly smoky (Fumé) flavours.
