The first ever! Peachy, almost delicate, meyer lemons and a back-palate stoniness, but one must wait as it had just been sulfured. The site is next door to Hermannshöhle on a mélange of Rotliegend and porphyry; some of it is steep and some is flat, and often it feels a little like Nierstein-meets-Felsenberg.
