From two vineyards, Drachenstein (38 years) and Roseneck (36 years), to quartzite soils with southern exposure, the grapes are hand-harvested at the beginning of October, de-stemmed and sorted in the cellar. Maceration lasts 12 hours followed by spontaneous fermentation in large wooden barrels (1200L) that lasts 12 weeks without temperature control. The wine spends a total of 12 months on lees, without stirring, and is aged for 13 months in a combination of two 1200L and one 600L barrels. Unfiltered.
