Fully ripe grapes are hand picked, to get a yield of about 40/45 hl/ha, followed by gentle treatment of the crop. Crushed must fermentation and maceration for about 20 days and maturing in barriques (French oak) for 11 months. For the most part in used barrels to underline this elegant wine.
The “Blauschiefer” is a very good example for the extraordinary combination of slate and Pinot Noir.
