Unlike the previous vintage, the grapes for 2018 were pressed immediately. Lagrein is a very dark grape, so the skins bleed off instantly – hence the darker hue in the previous release. We wanted to see what pressing immediately would give off for color. We love what this vintage produced – a fun textural, almost orange wine. It’s pressed into stainless steel and aged for 9 months. The numerous bottles of Nusserhoff’s Lagrein Rosé that we have enjoyed over the years from Alto Adige inspire this wine.
