Product Description

vineyard                Ried Bärnreiser Höflein

soil                          nutritious loam and loess

climate                  Bärnreiser is one of our warmest places, similar to a separate valley which stores the warm sunshine of the hot summer days and stays very warm during the nights as well. The deep soils keep the warmth for the grapes and therefore bring constant ripening, which is very important for the Merlot in our “cool climate”. As a result the vines yield a very high quality every year and a Merlot with dark fruit, a long and deep structure, and a very full-bodied palate.

vinification            harvested at the middle of October by hand, fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, the malolactic fermentation as well as the 14-month ageing were completed in small French oak barrels.
