about the harvest: Due to the warm summer the ripening of the bulk of this vintage was a little earlier than normal. Most of the fruit was picked during the 2nd week of March when condition had cooled off.

in the cellar : This blend of Blanc de Mer is once again different with the largest component being Weisser Riesling at 30%. The balance of grape components in descending order is Kerner, Chardonnay, Gewurtztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. With the influence of malolactic fermentation this vintage is softer on the palate than previously.
