The grapes were harvested by hand and immediately selected. Only the most beautiful and best grapes were processed further. The Blaufränkisch grapes were crushed and filled into a stainless steel mash tank. After a cold maceration of 3 days, yeast was added and fermentation started. The mash was submerged 6-8 times a day. This is especially important for the Blaufränkisch variety, so that the Blaufränkisch gets its typical spiciness and the colour is leached out of the grape skins. The fermentation lasted 8 days. After fermentation, the wine remained on the mash for another 12 days. Then the Blaufränkisch was pressed 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. The wine was aged 70% in stainless steel tanks and 30% in used barriques. After 6 months, the wine was drawn together again in a stainless steel tank, filtered and then bottled.
