The cherries comes exclusively from our oldest orchard at Frederiksdal estate, Nielstrupmark. The character is very much defined by a straight and nearly fragile cherry flavour given by the old cherry trees. In the fall of 2018, the trees at Nielstrupmark were felled due to age. The trees turned 25 years old, which is a relatively high age for trees used for production. New trees have been planted to replace the felled ones.
Frederiksdal Nielstrupmark is the world’s first single field cherry wine. The cherries are late picked from the orchards offering the full fruit flavor which is the characteristic of this indigenous Danish variety. The selected cherries are spontaneously fermented for 3-5 days and finished on steel tanks. Thereafter, the wine is stored for 18 months on French oak barrels. In total there were 40 barrels from the harvest of Nielstrupmark, but only 15 barrels came through the needle eye after storage and were selected for the final Nielstrupmark. The rest was declassified for other wines.
