The cellars have always exclusively served to the winemaking. The dynamism and experience brought successively by the 9 generations are the elements which procure a high level of quality.

ABOUT THE WINE
I first tasted this wine back in early 2014 and was just impressed by the power of the wine. The reason why I love Riesling, generally because you can see so many different styles from different parts of the world and whist I love the more elegant German styles, this wine took me by surprise with its complexity, power and intensity. Like all the wines from this 9th generation producer, there is a purity in the fruit flavours you get from their wines.
Classic grape scent of apples, citrus, but also some acacia. Almost medium bodied and clean taste with good fruit, lively acidity and nice minerality. A highly reliable wines, year after year.
