Untermoserhof 2017 Lagrein "Riserva" DOC
The main difference between the Riserva and the basic lagrein is the age of the vines (Riserva is between 30-60 years). Another important difference is the lower yield, which is around 7500 kg (55hl) per hectar. Grapes are destemmed, and for the first 5 days of fermentation pump overs occur twice daily in cask. After 18 -20 days the wines are racked off the skins and pressed. They are racked once again before putting the wine into 500L barrels for malolactic fermentation; here they are aged for 10-12 months. The Riserva is released 2 years after harvest.
