Grown on rare limestone soil around Schweigen, on German and French side. The vines are 15 to 36 years old.
The grapes were hand harvested, selected and destammed. The juice was fermented in big and small oak-barrels separated. Before pressed, the grapes were macerating for 14 to 21 days to extract all the flavours and aromas from the grape-skins into the juice.The further maturating took place for 16 months in small oak barrels. The filling was done without filtration and fining.
Pleasant, clear red ruby with dark reflections. In the nose scent of wild berries, tobacco, spices and forest floor. On the palate juicy, elegant with good length and structure.
