2017 Kleine Heimat

How we made it

One of the few vineyards we actually own is situated in Rödelsee, 15 minutes away from the winery. It’s in the middle section of the hill (called Schwanberg) with a gentle slope and an extraordinary soil.

The bunches were destemmed and the grapes fermented for 5 days before being pressed and put into a stainless steel tank and a barrel. After 10 months the batches were racked and blended into a bigger stainless steel tank which was topped up with a different Silvaner from the same hill (about 25%). Bottled in March 2019.
