    Description

    CELLAR INFORMATION Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature ; partial malolactic fermentation and aging on the lees for 10 months partly in stainless steel tanks (50%) and partly in big wooden barrels (50%) VINEYARD INFORMATION After a snowy winter, spring brought a prolonged period of exceptionally dry weather. Low temperatures in March and April resulted in very late budbreak, which protected our vines from frost damage resulting from the numerous frosty nights in April. A cool and wet May ensured a good water supply for the vines. They began to blossom on the earliest and warmest sites at the end of May to the beginning of June, two weeks later than the long-term average. June was a month of high summer temperatures and little precipitation. As a result, fungal pressure in the vineyards remained very low. July, on the other hand, was marked by heavy precipitation and thunderstorms, which continued into August in places. The average daytime temperatures in August were not too high, which was extremely beneficial in terms of the fruit and vibrant acidity in the 2021 vintage.

    On the earliest sites, the grape harvest began slightly late, on September 6, and the weather remained very good almost all the time.

    The 2021 grape harvest was somewhat smaller in volume. But from the beginning there were indications of a very exciting vintage.
