More about this wine

"Schilfwein" (literally "reed wine") is made from carefully selected, healthy and fully mature grapes which are stored and slowly air-dried on a bed of reeds. The moisture content of the grapes reduces as the grapes dry and the sugar and flavour concentration increases. After drying for a minimum of three months the raisin-like grapes will be pressed slowly and carefully. The resulting wines are sweet to very sweet and have a huge ageing potential. Flavours are immensely complex and concentrated.
