The nose is soft, fragrant and full of white peach, white flowers, sweet green herbs, sea breeze and pebbles. Youthful and fresh on the palate, with lots of stone fruit and lime, a fine saltiness, in a long, slender line leading to a finish that ends with a phenolic touch and other herbs.

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.
Sandy loam is held by light limestone marl, which is based on a thick layer of loam. In the depths lie the rocky ridges of the Black Forest foothills. The Sommerhalde Bombach is located in the eastern part of the Breisgau region, facing south, directly adjacent to the Black Forest. The wines benefit from the strong sunshine and the nocturnal streams of cold air that blow in from the Black Forest. The noticeable difference in temperature between day and night promotes a slow ripening of the pinot grapes with finely balanced harmony and fruity aromas.
Ideal drinking temperature 10 °C.
