Light shell limestone and yellow slate. The vines stand on small terraces on the south and south-west slopes of the Schlossberg von Staufen in the Markgräflerland. In this exposed location there is a pronounced microclimate with strong sunlight and cooling winds from the Rhine plain. In our wines from Schlossberg, this unites strength and freshness – tension and finesse and is reflected in the silky texture. Inky in colour and so concentrated, this single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon exudes aromas of youth. Incense and eucalyptus along with dark berries and enough tannic structure to age it for another 10 years minimum. Cassis is ripe on the nose along with cooked fruit, plums and smoke. Cassis again on the palate with fresh herbs and a balsamic seasoning.
