The first vineyard ever documented in Hohenruppersdorf in the 14th century, Sol's inhabitants were freedom-loving and fiercely independent. SOL also enjoys complete freedom: this wine is allowed to develop in its own way and in its own pace. It shows individual character and cannot be categorized.
Winemaking Notes: Fruit was 100% destemmed. 50% of the grapes macerated for 12 hours, gently pressed and fermented spontaneously. The other 50% fermented with the mash and were gently pressed after 4 months. The whole lot then matured on the lees without SO2 for 18 months in 500-litre oak barrels made from estate wood. This wine is unfiltered.
Tasting Notes: Notes of citrus, lime-tree blossom and peanut. This wine is exciting and animating, with enormously mineral complexity and lively acidity. Dry and long lasting finish, tightly packed, concentrated and structured.
