Vinification of the Bickel-Stumpf Thüngersheimer Johannisberg Silvaner
The basis for the balanced Thüngersheimer Johannisberg Silvaner from Franconia are grapes from the Silvaner grape variety.

This German wine can literally be called an Old World wine, which presents itself in an extraordinarily impressive way. The fact that Silvaner grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has a very high influence on the ripening of the grapes. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and even grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. After harvesting, the grapes are quickly taken to the pressing house. Here they are selected and carefully milled. Then fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The vinification is followed by aging on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled.
