2016 was not an easy vintage for the German winemakers. Spring showed changing weather with lots of rain but also warm temperatures including heavy storms and even hail. Summer continued
unstable. One day hot, the other wet. Harvest, however, was good with dry sunny days and cool nights. Selectively hand-picked grapes, long maceration time for up to 70 hours, spontaneous fermentation, maturation in 20% wood barrels and 80% stainless steel and extended yeast contact. This is still a very young wine with a pale yellow colour. Nose is very mineral with overripe pear aromas. Good structure on the palate with ripe acidity, a creamy texture and a long complex finish.
