The powerful Cuvée Josef***Barrique from Germany is a cuvée made from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties. The vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on clay, limestone and loess soils in the Palatinate. After the grape harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. This is followed by fermentation in small oak barrels at controlled temperatures. Vinification is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled.
