Story:

The TAPPS red is a wine cuvée that co- mes from two vineyards in southern Palatinate:

St. Laurent grows in a light sandy soil near Nussdorf and the Merlot thrives on clay soil near Walsheim.

The vineyards mainly slo- pe to the south. The use of chemicals in the vineyard is kept to a minimum and insecticides are not used.

An eco- logical nutrient cycle is attained using green manure.

The two types of vines were processed separately due to dif- ferent harvest times which depend on the peak of maturity of each type.

The grape de-stemming took place imme- diately after the grapes were received at the winery.

Next the grapes were crushed, fermented and left on the skins for 10-14 days. An over-pum- ping of the pulp called remontage oc- curred twice daily. This was followed by gentle pressing with a pneumatic wine press. Following organic ma- lolactic fermentation, the wine was stored in large oak barrels for several months and then bottled unfiltered.
