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.
The grapes were harvested by hand and selected immediately during the harvest. Only healthy and ripe grapes were processed further. The St. Laurent grapes were crushed and poured into a stainless steel mash tank. After a cold maceration of 48 hours, yeast was added and fermentation started. The mash was submerged 6-8 times a day. This leaches the colour and tannin from the grape skins. The fermentation lasted 5 days. After fermentation, the wine remained on the skins for another 8 days. Afterwards, the St. Laurent 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. This makes the wine much milder and smoother. The wine was aged 85% in stainless steel tanks and 15% in used barriques. After 4 months, the wine was drawn together again in a stainless steel tank, filtered and then bottled.
