Winemaking

After rigorous hand selection, berries are gently crushed and briefly cold soaked in stainless steel tanks. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in stainless steel and small French oak. 30-day total maceration in the tank to preserve the varietal's character.

Aged for 15 months in 20% new and  80% used French oak barrels.

The Year

After the rainy end of 2014 and very soft winter, we expected some infections early spring but managed to handle them successfully. Spring was short as usual in the last decade with prompt heat waves and unexpected cool periods. We had an ideal blooming time that resulted loose, healthy bunches. Summer and early fall were hot as hell also very dry. Still, our vineyards managed to avoid drought by utilizing the residual water in the deepest layers of the soil left from previous winter. The expected early harvest got delayed by a longer rainy period but did not affect quality. We harvested an awesome amount of wonderful fruit on every one of our vineyards without exception – and very much looking forward to tasting the wines of 2015.
