Im Pitterberg 

Pitterberg  lies in a small convex slope in the upper Nahe Valley in the middle of the Pitterberg vineyard. The south facing site is ensured sufficient sunshine that warms the grey Devon slate and its weathered debris. The soil is highly mineral; very fine loam covers the slate. The soil is well-drained and holds little moisture, which can lead to dryness in summer. Nightly fall winds are diverted by hill. This GG is picked mainly in the old domaine vineyards in the oldest an steepest part of Pitterberg, high density of plant up to 7500 vines per HA

Review:
A very delicate, even fragile beauty that has so much to give, but makes so little noise about it. Then comes the serious, dry and mineral finish that could be too austere for some, but excites us. Drink or hold.
