The grapes are picked from the oldest vines of the VDP. GROSSE LAGE (Grand Cru) HUNDERTGULDEN. 
The limestone soil there is based on a coral reef developed during the tertiary era. The steep south-west facing slope is one of the most calcareous vineyards of Germany and gives us shape and precise wines.

Fermentation: All grapes are selected and picked by hand. After a short maceration on skin, the must fermented by wild yeasts in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels until January. Afterwards another mature on lees until bottling in July.

Wine: Aromas of peach, ripe apple, spice and herbs fill the nose. Rich and complex, this full-bodied Riesling has flavours of quince, pear, and exotic fruits. It has an excellent salty minerality in its long lasting finish.
