The patience of our winemakers was put to the test during this year. The weather seemed perfect until the end of August. The damp September and October however, made intensive selection work in the vineyard necessary. The best wines of this vintage need a full year (the Riesling even one and a half year) to develop their full potential. This vintage is a bit like the character of the 2010 vintage. As we do not use grapes affected by botrytis, the wines are a bit lighter.
