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.

Review:
Stunning balance of rippling peaches and mandarines with acidity that almost vibrates on the palate and a smoky tone that adds to the complexity of the very long, dry finish. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
