Vinification of the Gut Hermannsberg Traisen Bastei Riesling GG
The elegant Traisen Bastei Riesling GG from Germany is a single-varietal wine, made from the Riesling grape variety. The fact that the Riesling grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has a considerable influence on the development of the vintage. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and evenly ripened grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. When perfectly ripe, the grapes for Traisen Bastei Riesling GG are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective machines. After the hand harvest, the grapes quickly reach the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully ground. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Vinification is followed by aging on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn into bottles.
