Kamptal DAC Riesling Seeberg 1. OTW Langenlois | 2015 100% Riesling. 13% alc. 3,5g/l residual sugar. The grapes were harvested by hand on 18th of October 2015 from estate vineyards on Seeberg. The transport to the winery was carried out in 350kg boxes of which the grapes were emptied directly into our press. After about 8 hours of mash contact a very gentle pressing program started. The whole grapes were pressed with a pressure of one bar over 5 hours, whereas the grapes were previously slightly squeezed twice, so that a small part of the berries burst. In this way, we achieve that part of the grapes release more tannin into the must. The must ran by gravity from the press house into the lower cellar. The lees filtration took place overnight and on the next day the must was filled into a stainless steel tank. The fermentation took place spontaneously until mid-February 2016. The wine was aged until shortly before bottling in July 2017 in a used wooden barrel on the fine lees. The Riesling Seeberg aged for another 13 months on the bottle before it went on sale in October 2018.
