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 2020 vintage produced very good qualities and a slightly below-average harvest, estimated at 8.6 million hectolitres nationwide. Weather conditions varied significantly in the growing areas. However, thanks to the sunny and dry late summer in Rheinhessen, highly ripe and very healthy grapes could be harvested within a very short period. The first white wines already present themselves accordingly aromatic and extremely fruity and the red wines show great potential.Skin contact up to 12 hours with spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel vats. Pale straw yellow with yellow reflexes colour and a nose full of clear scent of citrus, exotic aromas like papaya and passion fruit and a hint of white flowers. On the palate this is juicy and fresh with a well balanced acidity and a strongly pronounced minerality. Certified Organic & vegan.
