Harvest Report 2015

Growing Season: Mild temperatures during winter and spring were followed by an extremely hot and dry summer leading to an early ripening process and harvest kick-off on October 1st.  

Rainfall in September could not harm the thick-skinned grapes and the few rot affected berries were removed easily. Thanks to the cool and dry weather perfectly healthy and ripe grapes were picked. We were very happy about the Doctor Beerenauslese at 152° Oechsle!


Must Weight:  88° Oechsle – 152° Oechsle

Acid Content:  8,9 – 12,5 g/l

Duration of Harvest: Oktober 1st - Oktober 23rd 2015

Highs and Lows:

  • tiny yields with 5500 liter/ha due to the dryness
  • Exceptional quality through high concentration of the grapes
  • Beerenauslese from Bernkasteler Doctor
