The grapes stem from the vineyard Appenheimer Drossenborn. The roots of the wine are planted on an easily warmed up loess surface which is on the top of a chalkstone underground. Facing westwards, the vineyard is very open to wind hence protects the grapes from Boytritis and ensures a slow ripening process. This guarantees a solid tannin structure paired with a bunch of fresh berry aromas from small berry bunches.
Selective harvest by hand. After de-stalking fermentation of the berries with wild yeast is open contains. Moving of mash is being conducted by hand. The wine matures after fermentation for 18 months in French oak and bottled unfiltered.
On the nose, an animated aroma of ripe fruits of the forest, cherries, and Cassis, also slightly smokey wood and a bit of leather. On the palate gentle velvety fruit with a spicy tannin structure. A long finish rounds this wine up perfectly.
