Grape varierty: 100% Petit Manseng.
Production area: Mazzon close to Kaltern, an extensive south-facing mountainside terrace at an altitude of 400m above sea level, sunny and breezy and ideal for allowing grapes to hang long after the normal harvest period. The soil is a mixture of sand and clay mixed with a diversity of rock, finely eroded dolomite, porphyry, gneiss and granite to hand-sized stones.
Yield: hl per hectare.
Vinification: Given that some of the berries contained very little liquid it took eight hours to extract the juice. Fermentation took place in oak barrels with yeasts occurring naturally on the grapes and proceeded very slowly. After several months the fermentation stopped of its own accord once the alcohol level had reached 9% by volume. The natural result is an optimum balance between alcohol, acidity and residual sugar.
Deion: Scintillating golden straw yellow with accentuated fruit on the nose reminiscent of mango, lychee and dried apricots, complex and deep with elegant hints of honey and botrytis and an excellent interplay between sweetness and acidity on the palate.
Matching: Delicious savoured with delicate desserts or with cheese at the end of a meal.
Serving temperature: 8 - 10°C.
Residual sugar: 220 - 260 g/l.
Ageing potential: more than 10 years.
Bottle to: 0,375 liters, little bottle.
