VINEYARD SITE
Seefeld – sandy soil – Seefeld is situated in the west of Neusiedl am See, at the last bits of solid land before the marshes of the lake start. The whole plot is flat, dry and very windy. Since Seefeld is hot and straight in the haze of lake Neusiedl, the grapes grow very intense aromas.

VINIFICATION
during harvest, all grapes are processed in the backyard. whole bunches go straight into our screw press. no additives, no temperature control. Juice goes straight into stainless steel + large acacia and oak barrels (2000L) + fiberglass tanks. all vats racked before fermentation kicks in. natural fermentation. no temperature control. All 3 components of HOMOK (Grüner + Weissburgunder + Sauvignon Blanc) were mostly co-fermenting. everything matured on gross lees for 6 months without any additives, without fining and without filtration. Blended together shortly before bottling without any additives. At bottling we added 5mg of sulfur. unfiltered.

trivia: We care about our environment and feel responsible for trying to waste as little resources as possible. This is a major issue to us. Therefore we used up all cardboard cases from previous vintages.
