Vintage 2007

great fruit

In our region, the grapes are harvested between September and November. All the grapes are hand-picked, filled in grape boxes and brought into the cellars for pressing.

Basic information:
Our middle-sized wine estate allows us to adjust our harvesting activities to the actual weather conditions, meaning that we can afford to harvest only in case of good weather. The grapes are then being processed as quickly as possible – again, the size of our business helps us here, since there is enough capacity at both the press and the point of reception of the grapes for all the grapes we can harvest in one day. Each one of our grapes is handled with utmost care and respect.

Harvest diary:

Week 39: September 24 – 29, 2007
Early harvest of the Veltliner vineyards Hasel, Wechselberg, Gelber Berg - healthy grape material – gradation between 17 – 18.5, which is ideal for our Strassertaler wines - alc. 12-12.5 – acidity between 7 und 8 %o, ph-value around 3.4 – best values for a fruity wine like the Strassertaler.
End of the week – Harvest break – caused by little rainshowers

Week 40: October 1 -6, 2007
Harvest of the Gelber Muskateller – Wechselberg vineyard – excellent grape material – golden-yellow colour - gradation 17.5 – traditionally a fresh, young and fruity wine – but don’t worry, we will continue harvesting the full-bodied wines later on. 10 hours conservation time (the grapes stay in the press until the fermentation starts, and are only pressed carefully after about 8 hours), the fermentation started just right after clearing the must – again, perfect conditions for a fruity Muskateller wine from the Strassertal / Kamptal valley. Apart from the Muskateller grapes, the grapes for our red wine varieties, St.Laurent and Blauer Zweigelt, have been harvested, too.

Week 41: October 8 – 15, 2007
No harvest yet in order to capture the remaining power of the sunny days and have the single vineyards develop their full potential

Week 42: October 15 – 20, 2007
Continue harvesting the Grüner Veltliner grapes : GV Hasel Alte Reben, sugar grades 19.7. Then we have started harvesting the Weissburgunder grapes – high sugar grades, too (19.8) – only topped by the Chardonnay Hasel and Wechselberg (21.2 sugar grades) and the Graubburgunder Hasel (21.0) vineyard locations. After an early "pre-fermentation", the Graubburgunder is pumped into small oak barrels where it rests for at least 12 months. The Chardonnay is again fermented in a „classic“ way – with a rather small wooden note.

Week 43: October 22 - 27, 2007
Harvest of our TOP Riesling and Grüner Veltlinger vinyards as Zöbinger Heiligenstein and Strasser Gaisberg. Before the rainfalls started we brought in all of our grapes 100% healthy material with gradation between 19°- 21° KMW
