Das kleine Kreuz

Classification
Kreuz & Co.

Varieties:
Merlot, St. Laurent, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc

Origin:
Freinsheim’s vineyards are protected by gentle hills, in a very warm micro-climate. The dry soils contain a lot of sand and gravel, which are excellent heat sources and allow grapes – especially the international red varieties – to mature perfectly.

Vineyard work:
Buckwheat, radish and clover aerate the soil and attract useful animals. Horse dung fertilizes the soil naturally. We take off leaves selectivly and work with low yields.

Vinification:
Harvest by hand, second sorting and destemming in the winery. After a short maceration the crushed must ferments with wild yeasts. Aged in new and reused French barriques. No fining, no filtration.

Character:
Powerful and well balanced, with aromas of dark berries. Often earlier accessible than “Das Kreuz”.
