Pristine shale minerality hinted with lime zest and ripe peach fruit. A velvety texture with tart fruit that gives the wine briskness and drive lasting with a depth of flavor that is truly rewarding.
The grapes from this single vineyard come from our best Riesling plot and one of the oldest. This plot was planted in 1968 on 1613 and 3309 rootstocks. Soils on this plot have the highest slate content and are shallow with high natural acidity. This vineyard is managed by Eric Volz, current Vineyard Manager for the winery, who worked alongside his father Walter and grandfather, Dr. Konstantin Frank.
