The site Iphöfer Kalb is a steep slope exposed to the south. The gypsum soil warms easily which leads to elegant wines with fresh and vital flavors and a fine fruitiness. The mild climate and the long vegeration period enable the vines to collect many minerals from the dark gypsum soil. This results in fruity and substantial wines.
Silvaners from Iphöfen are strong, full-bodied wines with a savory aftertaste and a remarkable storability. Their unique character is evoken by the terrior. Not only is the pleasant mineral flavour very present in taste. Also the high share of chalk in the soil leads to a high quantity of extracts in the wine that buffers the acids. The bouquet is very clear with a subtle fruitness.
Taste: Spicy flavour of gypsum, subtle minetality, clear fruity flavour, fine juicy taste.
