Grape variety: Resling
Soil: Rich fertile loamy soil
Average Vine Age:
Farming practices: There is no use of herbicides, insecticides or industrial nitrogen fertilizer, only organic fertilizers are used. Seeds, stems and skins of our own grapes as well as horse and chicken manure are worked into the soil. There is use of other green fertilizers, such as the planting and mulching of a wide assortment of grasses and clovers between vineyard rows. In winter, every row is planted with these soil enriching plants and, in summer, every other row is mulched, thus introducing nutrients into the soil. There is no use of heavy machinery that compresses the soil in the vineyards. Instead, the vineyards are worked primarily by hand, using extensive canopy management (hand cutting of leaves to leave the grapes exposed to the sun, able to dry more quickly etc.). They maintain rigid yield control through strict pruning of the vines, thus ensuring highest quality, fuller-bodied wines with greater density.
Vinification: Charmat method in steel
Aging: Aged for 15-18 months on the lees, whereby the legal minimum is 9 months. The pressure in tank rises naturally to a very high 8 atmospheres, and after filtering and cooling to near freezing point which avoids any loss of sparkle, the bottling takes place next to the tanks in direct proximity.
