Description

The estate wines are characterized by the variety of vineyards and are therefore the calling card of this winery. The vines ripen exclusively in the prime locations around Bechtheim and Westhofen. The characteristic variety of the soils and the high maturity give them their special expression. A creation of young vines, planted on the traditional soil of the Bechtheimer terroir. Through strong reduction in yield, these young vines unfold their full power. Accurately developed and matured over several months to provide an extraordinary sensory experience. The result is innovative, elegant & a very fine wine. The fact that the vines in Rheinhessen sprouted later than usual in 2021 can be seen as a stroke of luck, as it meant that they were spared the night frosts in April. Also, partly due to the fungal pressure caused by the wetness, the winegrowing year differed from the three hot and dry previous years. The late start of the harvest in mid-September compared to previous years was a fortunate coincidence, as sunny days in September contributed decisively to the harvesting of a very appealing vintage. Ripening in the cool produces fruity wines that
offer a wide range of aromas even with moderate alcohol content. In addition, there is a fresh acidity – one of the main characteristics of German white wines. Skin contact up to 48 hours with spontaneous fermentation in 100% wooden barrels (500 liters Tonneau & 2,400 liters) with extended yeast contact. Creamy character with clear minerality, excellent drinkability & exotic fruit. Certified Organic & vegan.
