At the Allacher winery, the indispensable knowledge of tradition are combined with the modern insights of the next generation. What grows from this are great wines. The vineyards are located on about 30 hectares of the unique wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee, including the legendary vineyards Altenberg and Salzberg. The soil gives the potential. The winery provides natural, attentive care. Fresh fruity white wines, powerful dense red wines and extract-rich sweet wines are the precious result. Here happiness and glass find each other.

Winemaking

The two grape varieties were processed separately at different harvest times. Both were crushed and fermented in stainless steel mash tanks. The mash was submerged up to 10 times a day. After fermentation, the two 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 the two varieties were tasted several times. Based on the result of the intensive tasting, the best barriques were cuvéed to our Cuvée Gerard 2020. After a maturation period of 10 months in new barriques, the wine was filtered and bottled.
