  • 66% Riesling & 34% Grüner Veltliner
  • The vineyard was picked in two passes: one clone of Grüner Veltliner and one clone of Riesling in each pass.
  • Grüner Veltliner: destemmed bunches, berries were then lightly foot crushed and grapes bathed in juice to benefit from skin contact
  • Riesling: whole bunches were lightly foot crushed and grapes bathed in juice
  • First picking pass was pressed after 6 hours, while the second pass had 62 hours of skin contact
  • The varieties were then co-fermented
  • Fermented and aged in stainless steel barrels and neutral oak barriques for 11 months
