It’s made of Schwarzriesling aka; Pinot Meunier growing on the slope of the Fledermaus vineyard. We started farming it organically in 2014. The grapes were beautiful on the outside but many of them had acetic acid rot inside. Every grape had to be cut in half and examined, with many being discarded. A process that took three days! Due to the acetic acid the de-stemmed berries were macerated for four days only. After pressing, the wine finished fermentation in a steel tank and rested on the full lees until it was bottled in July 2018.
