Due to a very warm April, shoots of Riesling vines started on April 27th. Flowering started on June 2nd with a slight lead. Summer months followed with heat records of up to 40 °C (104°F). The result was partial sunburn damage to the pea-sized Riesling berries. Due to constant sunny weather, the harvest of Riesling grapes started on September 25 and continued until October 11th. With good ripeness and balanced acidity, they were able to bring a small but very good harvest to the cellar. Compared to the previous year, the yield was only 50%. Due to the weather, the harvest team was unable to pick any botrytis-infected grapes.
