The grapes stem from the oldest Riesling vines in Appenheim. The soil consisting of marl and shell limestone in the vineyards of Hundertgulden and Eselpfad give the wine its mineral character. Both vineyards are south-facing and between 150 and 240 meters in altitude. Warm temperatures in the day and cool nights ensure slow and balanced ripening period.
Late harvest takes place depending on ripening level in stages by hand. The optimal extraction of aromas is being achieved by granting grapes after picking and letting them rest for a few hours at the winery. After gently pressing the juice ferments with wild yeast partly in wooden casks and stainless steel. After 6 months on the yeast, the wine was bottled.
Aroma of spicy herbs and sweet yellow fruit.
On the palate salty minerals. Elegant acidity of lime paired with ripe fruit helps create a balance of power and elegance.
