VARIETAL: Blauer Wildbacher
AGE OF VINES: 35+
WINEMAKING: Grapes are carefully hand selected in the vineyard searching for the ripest grapes, which are destemmed and fermented with native yeasts. The wine sits on the skins for about 3 weeks after which the grapes are pressed. The wine then stays in barrel for 18 months in used 225, 300, and 500-liter wooden barrels (mostly oak with a very small percentage of acacia). There is zero sulfur added, the wine is not filtered or fined, and nothing is added at all.
