Picked along-side of the Beerenauslese grapes, here we used all the clean fruit for the Auslese style. Destemmed, crushed and sent to the basket press. Colled in SS tank then racked twice before warming for feremntation. Started on it’s wild yeast then helped with commercial yeasts. Finished on its fine lees for eight months before setup for bottling.
