Sauvignon Blanc Edelschuh
Edelschuh is a south facing single vineyard, 1600 to 1900 feet above sea level, with steep slopes from 73 to 90% inclination. The vines are 25 to 45 year old, planted on red and blue-black slate soil. It is a very warm site that produces grapes with a high level of ripeness and acidity – due to the altitude and cool nights. The grapes are hand picked late but are botrytis free. They are given a short maceration time and are very gently pressed. Slow natural fermentation in 500l wooden casks. Bâtonnage for several months and almost 1 year aging in the casks. The resulting wines are complex, mineral driven and have very good aging potential. 13.5% alcohol.
