On September 18 we started harvesting. Our Diva Pinot noir came in perfect quality in the cellar … afterwards there were a few days of rain. On the 22nd, in the most beautiful autumn weather, we continued with full ripe and healthy Zweigelt and Merlot grapes. The grapes are harvested by hand and we select directly in the vineyards. It is a real joy to harvest the crunchy berries. The Blaufränkisch grapes are small-berry – a merit of the hot summer and our work in the vineyards.
He is charming but never forcing. In his youth powerful and fiery, fruity and spicy. He loves to surprise and to change his face. He remains polite in the background but when his time has come, he inspires everyone and convinces with his character, dense structure, his strength, powerful body and yet inner peace. When he is getting older he shows his elegance and classy but never seems old…and although when he has gone, one has the impression that he is here forever. I am so happy that he is always with me: One of my seven Blaufränkisch variations.
