Vinification of Weingut Hammel Lokalmatador Cuvée Rot
This balanced red wine from Germany is vinified from the Acolon, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir grape varieties. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in the Palatinate. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into loess and gravel soils. After harvesting, the grapes are immediately taken to the winery. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Lokalmatador Cuvée Rot can continue to harmonize on the fine lees for a few months.
