The story of this speciality began in 1998, as we created an innovative dry power Riesling. This is an ultra-premium quality wine. Grapes are selected from the most mature and oldest vineyard sites of the Estate and these old vines, planted in the 1920s have low yields and small berries with intense flavour profiles. We take great care to pre-pick the steep Riesling vineyards several times. Only the healthy and most mature grapes remain on the vines. The grapes continue to ripen until they reach a natural potential alcohol level of 11-11,5 % by vol . From these very ripe and golden yellow grapes we make the much celebrated: Gold-Quadrat. Our new dry power Riesling has aromas of honey, apricots and yellow plums. Gold-Quadrat was named food wine of the Year 2000 and White Wine of the Year in 2001 in Belgium and Holland by Proefschrift.
