Description

Kupfergrube – on the site of an old copper mine – is a narrow strip of vineyard between the river and a steep volcanic cliff and has correspondingly little airflow. The rocks reflect and store heat, and the grapes have riper flavours even when they have the same must weight as those in other vineyards. This is broader and gentler than the Felsenberg, still tightly focussed, but with softer orange rather than lemon, red fruit notes and a fresh steely salty finish.
