Grapes for this wine mainly stem from a mixed vineyard; they are then pressed together. The Cuvée is made in stainless steel tanks bringing forward wines with pronounced Pinot aromas. Chardonnay brings the spice whereas Pinot Blanc adds silkiness and weightier flavours, enhancing body and strength.
This flavoursome white is fermented and matured in new barriques and is only sold after a minimum maturation period of 5 years in the bottle.
A Chardonnay in Pinot style, however taste and nose are lime-dominated.
The grapes mainly originate from the parcels ”Im großen Garten“ and the Großen Gewächs site ”Burgweg“.
The mature Gewürztraminer grapes often lack acidity and so really benefit from the acidity that the Riesling adds to this Cuvée. The aromas are more of a classic Gewürztraminer with distinct lychee and rose notes.
This dry Riesling Spätlese is the link between our Kabinett and the Großen Gewächsen. This wine captivates one through its silkiness, body and delicate fruit.
The ”Kapellenberg“ wines are characterised by alluvial sediments – light soil with grit and sand.
The Riesling from this site is lively and mineralic, often with exotic fruit on the nose. The wines are ready to drink in their youth, but will age for several years.
The wines originate from the core parcel ”Himmelsrech“ (literally heaven). Expressive, frequently exotic fruit (pineapple and passion fruit), delicate play of acidity, very long aftertaste. In their youth these wines are often warmer and more appealing than the wines from the ”Steinbuckel“ site.
Our best Pinot Gris grows in the Große Gewächs sites ”Mandelpfad“ and ”Steinbuckel“. In good years and after careful selection we only ferment the best grapes in new barrique and let them lie on the yeast for about 6 months. The results are concentrated, lasting wines with intense aroma.
This Pinot Gris has a soft mouth feel, an intense aroma and a basket of vivid fruits. This full-bodied, well-balanced (low acidity) white wine is vinfied both in traditional wooden barrels and in stainless steel tanks.
This is a typical bone-dry wine with a bite. Residual sugar is below 4g/l, often less than 1g/l.
This grape variety, originating from the Loire, enthrals through its array of aromas: gooseberry, peach and elderflower.
Through reductive vinification in stainless steel tanks the freshness of the wines are preserved, even emphasised.
This is the perfect summer wine charming through voluptuous fruit and low alcohol.
The ”Steinbuckel“ brings forward wines that are dominated by its limestone terroir – mineralic, long aftertaste with a good ageing potential. After maturing, when they reach their peak they display aromas of green gauge and peach.
