Description

The single vineyard wines are selected and carefully processed from only the oldest and best vineyards. The autonomy of traditional grape varieties, combined with the soil and the layers, creates wines that reflect their expression and maturity including all the peculiarities of their origin. These are precise and exciting wines. This south facing location is one of the best in the whole of the Rheinhessen with weathered limestone soils and a unique climate that form the basis for incomparable Rieslings. Challenging but favourable vintage: Hot, dry and sunny summer with an early flowering and a fast ripening process. The weather conditions continued into the harvest, allowing many grapes to stay on the vine right up to October. Of course, the drought also led to water stress in some regions. Since temperate heat and cool nights dominated in September and October the grapes remained healthy and were able to develop intensive aromas. Selectively hand-picked grapes, maceration period for 24h, spontaneous fermentation, maturation in wooden barrels 30% and stainless steel 70%, extended yeast contact. Light golden yellow colour with a typical powerful Riesling nose full with refreshing citrus notes & typical apple and yellow stone fruit aromas Palate is full of enormous power and juiciness, paired with fruit flavors such as grapefruit, quince and green apples. This complex and full-bodied Riesling will present itself optimally in a few years. Great ageing potential! Certified organic.
