The lagrein grapes are picked by hand.
The wine gets bottled about 10 months after the harvest.
The hand-picked Lagrein grapes are de-stemmed and after a cool maceration (20 -26°C) for 10 days, they finish their sugar breakdown within about 10 days without the pomace. Further refinement and maturation also takes place in steel tanks, whereby we deliberately use simple cellar techniques (aeration, sedimentation, heat and cold input, filtration) in order to maintain the unaltered character of the location and vintage.
After botteling follow 4 months of bottle aging.
