The three grape varieties, St. Laurent, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested at different times and processed completely separately. All were crushed and fermented in stainless steel mash tanks. The mash was submerged up to 10 times a day. After fermentation, the three varieties were separated, put into new barriques and the biological acid degradation was initiated. Here, lactic acid bacteria convert the harsh malic acid into milder lactic acid and reduce the overall acidity. This makes the wine much milder and smoother. After the acid degradation, all barrels of St. Laurent, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon were tasted several times. Based on the result of the intensive tasting, the best barriques were cuvéed to this Altenberg. After maturing in new barriques, the wine was filtered and bottled.
