2018 Spätburgunder

How we made it

After two trickier vintages 2018 was very satisfying. Fantastic grapes and a higher quantity than the years before. As always the grapes were destemmed with 20% of the stems added back in the must. Fermentation took eight days. The wine went into two old barrels for malolactic fermentation and was racked and blended into a bigger barrel in summer 2019 before being bottled in March 2020.
