Description

An 1. Lage (1er cru) made from 40-year-old vines in the heart of the vineyard, growing on very poor limestone soils that yield only very small berries. This doesn’t taste of Silvaner – it is a pure terroir wine: the intense smooth generous juicy lemony fruit, the fresh pointed acidity and the lean stony mineral flavours with a dash of salinity perfectly reflect the shell-limestone soils on which the vines grow. Matured in three-to-five-year-old casks, there is a hint of oak on the long finish.
