WINE

Wine variety: 60.00 % Chardonnay, 10.00 % Kerner, 10.00 % Gewürztraminer, 10.00 % Sauvignon, 10.00 % Welschriesling
Grapevine: 10 fertile buds
Maturing method: At a sugar content of 18.00 %, 10.80 % ABV is produced. Secondary fermentation increases the alcohol content by 1.00 %.
Grape sorting: Healthy grapes only.
Yeast: From the region of Champagne.
Production: The grapes are harvested and pressed, then cellared for 7 months. After the first round of cellaring, sugar and yeast are added to the wine, which is then left to ferment for 2 months. This causes the atmospherspan pressure in the bottle to rise to 6.50 bars. The wine is then cellared for at least another 2 years with added yeast. In the final months of cellaring, the bottles are flipped upside down. The final phase involves the removal of lees.
Duration of production: 3 years
Cellaring: 7 months, 2 months and 2 years.
Bottling method: machine bottling
Corking method: machine corking
Light: Avoided in all production phases.
Production temperature: 11°C
Serving temperature: 5°C
Bottle inclination: 17°
Wine volume: 970 ml
Wine weight: 950 g

Bottle

Bottle dimensions: Height 318 mm, top diameter 42 mm, bottom diameter 106mm
Material: Lead crystal glass from Steklarna Rogaška
Colours/coloration: “Glanz Bright Brushing Gold”
Tools used during production: Metallic mould tool, painting brushes, various grinding machines and accessories
Work methods: The blank is blown on an automated line; all other work is done manually. The pattern lines are ground into the material; this is followed by sandblasting additional decorations. Later on, gold colouring is applied with a paintbrush and then fired in the furnace.
Temperatures involved in the production process: The temperature of molten glass is 1,450°C, during processing it falls to between 700 and 800°C; the annealing furnace goes from 550 to 50°C in 4 hours. The gold is fired at around 470-520°C during the course of 8 hours.
Polishing: Acid polishing using a mixture of hydrofluoric and sulfuric acid + hand polishing.
Applying gold: The gold is applied manually with a paintbrush and onto previously sandblasted and brushed lines, patterns, and motifs.
Finishing work: The pattern lines are ground into the material; this is followed by sandblasting additional decorations. Later on, gold colouring is applied with a paintbrush and then fired in a furnace.
The acids used: A mixture of hydrofluoric and sulfuric acid – polishing. A mixture of ammonium sulphate + acetic acid – for cleaning
Chamber: A chamber for testing pressure up to 9 bar 3 times
Furnaces: Annealing furnace and colour firing furnace.
Gold colouring: The colour applied contains 10.00% of real gold.
Manufacturing the blank: The blank is blown on an automated line, all other work is carried out manually.
Degrees and the time it takes to fire the glass and gold colouring: The annealing furnace goes from 550 to 50°C in 4 hours, while the gold is fired at around 470-520°C during the course of 8 hours.
Disinfection and washing: A mixture of ammonium sulphate + acetic acid
Applying gold manually/mechanically: The gold colouring is applied manually with brushes and then fired in a furnace.
Design execution: The basic form is produced via a mould; additional grinds and motifs are then added.
Weight of the blank: 1,950 g
Final product weight: 1,900g
Production time for the final product: 16 days
Cooling down: It is important for the product to properly cool down in an annealing furnace.
