The wine is still very young on the nose, but it already shows fabulous complexity. There are aromas of physalis, white peach, candied kumquat, fresh figs and mango. A dominant sweetness can be felt on the palate at first, but then it unfolds its body and an unexpected lightness and filigree freshness can be felt. A very fascinating finish with great length, ending with a hint of rose pepper. This wine is already a pleasure to drink, but it also has great aging potential.
Baden is situated in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, bordering France to the west and Switzerland to the south. It stretches from the northern part of the Black Forest to the northern outskirts of the city of Basel.
Baden is known for its vibrant wine culture, and various wine festivals and events take place throughout the year. These festivals provide an excellent opportunity for locals and visitors alike to taste and enjoy the region’s wines.
Climate & Terroir
The region benefits from a relatively mild climate, thanks to its proximity to the Rhine River and the shelter provided by the Black Forest to the east. The diverse terroir of the region, including various soil types and microclimates, allows for the cultivation of a wide range of grape varieties.
These vines grow on the south and south-west slopes of the Schlossberg in Staufen in Markgräflerland. The soil is characterized by shell limestone and yellow slate. In this exposed location there is a pronounced microclimate, with strong sunshine and cooling winds from the Rhine plain. The wines from the Schlossberg combine strength and freshness, excitement and finesse and, with their silky texture, form one of the estate’s highlights.
Ideal drinking temperature 10 °C.
