Vineyard: The fruit for this dry wine comes from our sustainably farmed Ungsberg vineyard on breathtakingly steep slopes high above the Mosel River in the Kautenbach valley. These south-facing slopes are covered in blue and grey slate with quartz deposits near the roots. The Ungsberg is known for the extreme pitch of the slopes, as well as for the herbal spices from the healing herbs grown in the vineyard since the Roman- Celtic era. This wine comes primarily from ungrafted, old vines, 40-60 years old. Grape vines have been cultivated on this spot since the Roman times.

 

Harvest Date: late October

 

Production Notes: The fruit for this wine is deep, rich and intense, produced only from the healthiest and oldest vines in this vineyard (40-60 years old). It is carefully hand picked later in the season to allow for ideal ripeness. All fruit is painstakingly hand sorted to allow only the best grapes to be crushed for this grand cru. The juice is fermented by natural occurring yeast only- no added cultures- slowly at cold temperatures until the perfect balance of acidity and fruit is reached. The wine was aged on the natural yeast for 10 months, then aged 100% in German in oak barrels. This wine was bottled in mid- July.
