            [WineMakingNotes] => " Protected from cold winds, the vineyard from which the grapes for our Schieferstern come is located in a hollow at the foot of the Hubertuslay mountain. 
The richly rooted slate soil gives the old but strong vines their flavor and also allows many herbs to sprout: Viper`s bugloss, stonecrop, chervil, wild carrot, pimpernel, fine ray, wild strawberry, etc. delight the insect world and the astonished vintner with their colors and scents. Even the rare partridge could already breed here. "

father, spraying the vines with chemicals and fertilisers led to a realisation that there must be another way. Various figures in his life shaped the 
direction Rudolf took. It was a book by Rudolf Steiner (the founder of the biodynamic approach to agriculture), that marked the beginning of over 40 years in biodynamic viticulture for the Trossen vines. The purity of the 
Trossen wines, their filigree minerality and energy seem to reflect the 
abundance of life both above and below the soils in these vineyards. In the winery, Rudolf takes what could be described as a sympathetic approach coaxing his wines through their ferments, some taking over a year. The 
purus wines are natural, the others have tiny additions of sulphur to avoid losing the vineyard expression in the glass.

To keep this originality we forgo all unneccessary operations that would stress or alienate the wine.

moon, wind and weather, soil type and inclination to the sun and the devoted hand of the vintner. in modern terms called "terroir". To keep this originality we forgo all unneccessary operations that would stress or alienate the wine. Through careful manual picking, gentle pressing and slow fermentation, preferably with natural yeast in small barrels, we accomplish the production of our wines so that their heritage, the vineyard so to say, can be perceived. If we succeed, this makes them singular and unmistakeable.

In 2010 we bottled our first Riesling without intervention. nothing added, nothing taken away - no additives and no filtration. Without sulphur as a stabiliser this Riesling develops very differently in smell and taste and reveals hitherto hidden depths and finesse.
 

We keep these wines on the lees for a very long time and wait until all biological processes have come to an end. Then we fill the wines by hand into champagne bottles and seal them with a crown cap to preserve the natural carbon dioxide. As a result these wines are protected from premature oxidation and can be kept for years.

In Rudolf’s own words, he feels in “a privileged situation to make a living from 2.5 hectares of vines”. His early years as a boy working with his father, spraying the vines with chemicals and fertilisers led to a realisation that there must be another way. Various figures in his life shaped the direction Rudolf took. It was a book by Rudolf Steiner (the founder of the biodynamic approach to agriculture), that marked the beginning of over 40 years in biodynamic viticulture for the Trossen vines. The purity of the Trossen wines, their filigree minerality and energy seem to reflect the abundance of life both above and below the soils in these vineyards. In the winery, Rudolf takes what could be described as a sympathetic approach coaxing his wines through their ferments, some taking over a year. The purus wines are natural, the others have tiny additions of sulphur to avoid losing the vineyard expression in the glass.

" Protected from cold winds, the vineyard from which the grapes for our Schieferstern come is located in a hollow at the foot of the Hubertuslay mountain. The richly rooted slate soil gives the old but strong vines their flavor and also allows many herbs to sprout: Viper`s bugloss, stonecrop, chervil, wild carrot, pimpernel, fine ray, wild strawberry, etc. delight the insect world and the astonished vintner with their colors and scents. Even the rare partridge could already breed here. "
