2015 Wilde Heimat

How we made it

The 2015 vintage was the first we picked from this vineyard which we had inherited from our friend Stefan Vetter. It’s an approximately 40-something year old Silvaner vineyard, growing on the steepest top of the hill on meager Keuper soil. Loads of sun, hard to farm.
The beautifully ripe grapes were partly fermented on the skins (about 1/3) for ten days and partly pressed after two nights of skin-contact. Aging in 60-year old oak the wines came together in summer 2016 and remained in a tank until bottling in March 2018.
