Vinification of the Winzerhof Stahl Felswand Sauvignon Blanc
The basis for the powerful Felswand Sauvignon Blanc from Franconia are grapes from the grape variety Sauvignon Blanc. The fact that the Sauvignon Blanc grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate has an influence on the development of the grapes that cannot be dismissed. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and uniform grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. The grapes for this white wine from Germany are harvested exclusively by hand at the time of optimal ripeness. After harvesting, the grapes reach the winery by the fastest route. Here they are selected and carefully ground. This is followed by fermentation in large wood at controlled temperatures. After its end, the Felswand Sauvignon Blanc is aged for several months in oak barrels.
