More about this wine

The Hochäcker site is composed of hard ferruginous clay, and is ideal for Blaufränkisch and Merlot. The oldest vines on the site are roughly 80 years old. The wines that come from here age very well and are full of character. Native yeast fermentation in steel tanks is followed by pressing then 15 days of mash-state, biological malolactic fermentation in a large oak barrels & 17-month barrel-ageing.
