Vineyard Rötiberg 2016

2016AOC Schaffhausen

2016 was a cooler year with fewer hours of sunshine. A very fruity vintage thanks to the ripe grapes of the late harvest. Due to the frost in spring, the yield was rather small, but still very high quality.

For us, now is the perfect time to enjoy this wonderful vintage. It convinces with its velvety tannins and a beautiful balance between fruit and acidity.

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.
