The growing season in the Pfalz started early and the summer was very hot and dry, which led to an early harvest. The yields were excellent compared to the small 2017 vintage, and we were very happy to have such healthy grapes and high quality. The 2018 harvest period was unproblematic and quite smooth. Because of the dry weather conditions and the healthy state of the grapes there was no need to rush, giving us time for careful selection and very gentle handling in the cellar. Fermentation in a combination of stainless steel, large neutral oak casks and concrete tanks. Blended before bottling. Malolactic fermentation is avoided in order to maintain lively acidity. Light filtration before bottling. No other filtering or fining.
