This German wine can be described in the best sense of the word as an Old World wine that presents itself in an exceptionally impressive manner. The fact that the Silvaner grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has an influence on the ripeness of the grapes that cannot be dismissed. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and uniform grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. The grapes for this white wine from Germany are harvested, at the time of optimal ripeness, exclusively by hand . After the hand harvest, the grapes reach the winery by the fastest route. Here they are selected and gently broken up. Then fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, the Mönchshof Silvaner Großes Gewächs can harmonize further for several months on the fine lees.
