Ausbau, Keller und Lagerung

Cellar techniques

The first half occurs of course in the vineyard. If the vines are well-tended and the plants and fruits are healthy and ripen well, then nothing stands between them and the development of a good pure wine, or a cuvee. But how the end result then tastes depends to a large extent on the techniques applied in the cellar.

Storage

Fermentation:

Since sugar is changed into alcohol through fermentation, there are several factors that play a role during fermentation of predicate wines

Thus grapes that are harvested as ”Late Harvest“ (Spätlese) cannot result in a sweet wine. It depends on the winegrower, who decides whether or not to let these develop until they are dry, that means, to let the wine ferment all the way, or to stop it (interrupt fermentation) in order to have a percentage of residual sugar.
