Our aim for the highest quality is deeply rooted in our efforts. In doing so, we have a clear idea of what quality means to us. We want to produce handcrafted, culture inspired and, above all, wines that reflect their origin. Authentic wines that radiate pure joie de vivre and reflect the stylistic diversity of our winery.
We divide our wines into three quality levels:
Our absolute top wine is the Spirit of Lynx that shows everything we can and stand for: power, passion, energy and the pursuit of perfection. It is a classic Bordeaux blend made with care and patience. For this we mature the wine in oak barrels for at least 18 months and at least another 6 months in the bottle. It is only produced in exceptional years and the release is strictly limited.
In the Reserve Range, the wines mature for at least 12 months in oak barrels and at least another 6 months in the bottle. Once the wine has reached its maturity it comes on sale with a great cellaring potential. In the Reserve Range we only produce a few hundred bottles of each wine.
In our Lynx Range you will find entry-level wines that are now ready to drink. The Range gives you a good idea of our variety from easy drinking wines.
At our winery, we have an uncompromising commitment to the grapes. We harvest the grapes by hand. Our knowledge acquired over the years in the wine cellar, combined with the experience of nature, vines and wine production, are the building blocks of our quality standards and ensures that our wines are top notch. Our goal is to produce a selection of expressive wines that reflect both our unique terroir and the passion of our cellar master and his small team.
On Lynx we use the so-called Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) on all our vines. This means that all shoots are bound in such a way that they grow vertically upwards. This grants us that all leaves get the full sun either in the morning or in the afternoon, which is essential for the successful ripeness of the grapes.
THE WINE CELLAR
As with Lynx,
we have made it our mission
to create wines
that will remain in the memory for a long time to come.
In our wine cellar we still use many traditional appliances such as the open concrete tanks for fermenting the grapes or the hand-operated basket press. The open tanks give us the unique taste of our grapes, which we are so well known for.
In addition, we do the so-called Punch Downs. Here, the grapes are crushed by hand at regular intervals, so that we receive a controlled fermentation.
We use both steel tanks and French oak barrels in our wine cellar, with all our reds ripening in the latter.
Our employees not only just do their job – they live with the wine and for the wine – above all, our cellar master Helgard. He and his team take care of our vines with heart, hand and mind to achieve the optimal result. Out of conviction and respect for nature, we care for our vineyards. This is the prerequisite for first-class plants, from uncomplicated wines for daily occasions to the characterful top-of-the-range product for special occasions. Without our reliable employees, our operations might not work as well. We have employees who fully identify with our ideas and goals and pull together with us.
With the only goal: To inspire our customers and all those who want to become one with our wines.
