Type: Sparkling Rosé
Grape: Schwarzriesling, Pinot Meunier
Made from Schwarzriesling / Pinot Meunier growing on shell limestone. The vineyard is pretty much in the middle of the town. It has been farmed organically since 2014. And as the vineyard had been treated well before the winery took over the plants, it didn’t suffer from that switch – at the cost of a reduced yield.
With 50% of the berries crushed (after destemming) we gave it a skin contact time of 48h before pressing. Fermentation had started already so sedimentation was not an option anymore. We bottled in the end of November with 17g/l of residual sugar and disgorged warmly in July 2017.
