Kreuznacher Krötenpfuhl

The loess loam soil of the Krötenpfuhl vineyard is notable for its high share of gravelly quarzite. Between the stony ground and its southern aspect, this neighbor to the Kahlenberg is known for warm soils and early flowering of the vines year after year. The loess loam substrate retains water well, ensuring the vines have sufficient moisture even in drought years. Vines growing in this type of pebbly soil tend to produce small berries with delicate aromas, a lively acidity and a long hang time.

Review:
Prototypical Kabinett with a light body, effusive red apples, then a long, mineral finish. Did somebody say this was an off-dry wine? Yes, but the balance make it extremely food-friendly. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification. Drink now. Screw cap.
