Vinification of the Schloss Proschwitz Meissener Pinot Gris
This wine clearly puts the focus on one grape variety, and that is Pinot Gris. Only first-class grapes were used for this exceptionally elegant single-varietal wine from Schloss Proschwitz. When the perfect physiological ripeness is ensured, the grapes for the Meissener Grauburgunder are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective full harvesters. After the harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the winery. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Vinification is followed by aging for several months on the fine lees before the wine is finally drawn into bottles. After the wine is finished, the Meissen Pinot Gris is carefully harmonized.
