Harvest report Rheingau Estate 2001


Growing season: From the beginning, vintage 2001 developed great. An early florescence as well as a well balanced climate with enough sunshine and rainfall made our vines to ripen in the middle of august. Persistant rainfall in september returned memories of the vintage 2000 in mind, but a "golden october" made our traditional late harvest possible. 

Must weight : 81° - 186° Oechsle

Acid value : 7,7 - 10,5 g/l

Harvest period: 15th of October until 15th of December 2001
