In the last beautiful autumn days after the main harvest
A cold resting period before and after fermentation leaches out the grape aromas and tannins and give the wine its necessary structure and its excellent aging potential. The wine rests in oak barrels for around a year and then receives another five months of aging in the bottle before it goes on the market.
Beautiful black cherries, light tobacco notes and elegant vanilla tones are perceptible on the nose and on the palate. An excellent meal companion.
Special about the wine
The Rötiberg, one of the best and steepest south- facing vineyard locations of Wilchingen, produces complex wines with great aging potential. The grapes are yield reduced to 700gr/m2. It gives the wine a strong fruit and structure. The wine ages for 12 months in large 500 liter barrels, after that it goes unfiltered into the bottles.
