The Grand Cru site 'Marcobrunn is amongst the best in the world. For the cellar master of Schloss Reinhartshausen it is both a honour and a pleasure to be able to accompany these benchmark sites. The grapes of these Grand Cru are gently pressed by horizontal wooden presses involving intense manual labour.
The Marcobrunn site is a slightly sloping southern site within boundaries of Erbach. Its name dates back to the 13th century and stems from a spring on the border between Erbach and Hattenheim. The vine area, which is only 6.7ha, grows only Riesling. Heavy loess loam and chalky soil out of marl with sand ensures a prefect nutrient supply and regulates the water levels in the dry periods.
The wine shows extremely intense fruit flavours, as well as aromas of peach and honey with fine citrus and passion-fruit notes. It is full bodied, yet elegant with an excellent taste and finish.
