7 to 17
years aged vines
Juicy yellow fruits. Vineyard peach, cantaloupe, lemon peel and a hint of peony on the nose. The aromas are all closely interwoven. Additional notes of freshly grated nutmeg once it has breathed. Wonderfully soft and juicy in the mouth. Yellow fruits also reflected in the flavour. Lively tannins and aromatic acidity on the aftertaste. (Arno Bergler, WeinErleben)
Among the oldest grape varieties cultivated on earth. Susceptible to bunch rot and late-maturing, it needs warm and frost-free conditions. Clusters are medium-sized, elongated and winged, to double.
Harvesting and grape selection by hand, short maceration period, gentle pressing, spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a further 6 months maturation on fine lees in stainless steel tanks.
