Technical Info

Maturing

The juice is decanted in order to begin the winemaking with a clean and clear must. We inoculate with selected neutral yeasts to start the alcoholic fermentation. The fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats (64 Fahrenheit / 18 Celsius) and takes between 4 to 6 weeks. It is followed by a maturing on the fine lees for another 2 to 3 months. The wines are then racked, cold stabilized and go through a light filter (Kieselguhr). The wine is then finished and stays in tempered tank until the bottling. The wines are generally bottled between 8 and 10 months following the harvest.

Riesling

The most famous grape variety of Alsace and the most cultivated (25% of the production in Alsace). Riesling is the latest-ripening of the Alsace varietals. It needs cool nights in order to reach maturity. The good side is that this grape variety has no equal when it comes to expressing the terroir through its dryness and minerality. It is best suited to poor and even stony soils, with abundant light exposure.

Vinification

The winemaking of our premium range focuses on the varietal character and the fruit. The grapes are harvested at good maturity and pressed in pneumatic presses. The pressing is fractured and takes 4 hours in total.
