Grape: 100 % Weissburgrunder (Pinot Blanc)
Barrel Ageing: 18 months
Serving Temperature: 12 degree
Animating smell of citrus fruits, green apples and lots of mineral and floral notes. A natural Pinot Blanc with medium volume and invigorating acid structure. In 2018 strong white wines were created, which have grippy tannins due to the warm year. Because of the long yeast storage, it is extremely fresh at a young age, but it has very good storage potential.
70 % of the grapes for this wine come from preferred lots in our loessial soil vineyards of the Oberrotweiler Käsleberg. The other 30 % come from our Große Lagen Henkenberg and Eichberg, which are made up of volcanic soils.

Gentle pressing and skin contact of 8 hours. The fermentation takes place in oak barrels of 1200 L without any filtration or sedimentation of the juice. The wood for these barrels is won from our own trees in the Kaiserstuhl and shipped to selected tonneleries in Burgundy for processing. The alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts takes place in the barrels at high temperatures and is very stormy and fast, without any temperature control. After malolactic fermentation the wines are aged in the oak sur lie for at least 18 months before they are bottled without filtration.
