This wine was aged in barriques.

Vinification

The grapes were harvested by hand and selected immediately during the harvest. Selective harvesting is particularly important for the St. Laurent variety. Only the best grapes were processed into our St. Laurent Apfelgrund. The St. Laurent grapes were destemmed and placed in a stainless steel mash tank. After a cold maceration of 24 hours, the yeast was added and fermentation began. The mash was submerged 6-8 times daily. This makes the wine elegant, very dark and intense in taste. The fermentation lasted 8 days. After fermentation, the wine remained on the mash for another 8 days. The mash was then pressed and biological acid fermentation was initiated. Here, lactic acid bacteria convert the rough malic acid into milder lactic acid and the overall acid content is reduced. This makes the wine much milder and smoother. One day after pressing, the wine was filled into 70% new and 30% used barriques. After 6 weeks, the malolactic fermentation was complete and the wine was drained and aired. After filtration, the barriques were refilled. After aging in barriques, the St. Laurent Apfelgrund was bottled.
