Grown on the rare limestone soil around Schweigen, on German and French side. The vines are 14 to 35 years old.
The grapes were hand harvested and selected. The juice was fermented in big and small oak-barrels separately. Before pressing the grapes were macerated for 14 to 21 days to extract all flavours and aromas from the grape-skins into the juice. The further maturation took place for 16 months in small oak barrels. The filling was done without filtration and fining.
Pleasant, clear ruby red with dark reflections. In the nose scents of wild berries, tobacco, spices and forest floor. On the palate juicy, elegant and good length and structure.
