Estate: 11 generations of family tradition and experience in grape growing and wine making. Export to more than 60 countries around the world. Grape: Silvaner - traditional for Rheinhessen, more than 350 years old, can produce some of the very fines, top quality grapes. Terroir: Loam and clay. Heavy soil with excellent absorptive capacity for rain water. Hillside shaped as a horse-shoe, thus perfect protection from heavy weather conditions. Quality: Prädikatswein - Eiswein. Grapes gathered at minus 10° C, freezing the juice inside the berries to solid ice and squeezing the skins rapidly before the ice melts, sacrificing 90% of the normal harvest quantity. This bottle contains the juice of approximately 1 kg of grapes! Taste: Golden colour, rich taste, character and noble natural sweetness - highest concentration. Viticulture: Natural cultivation following officially controlled measures (DLG). Reduced pruning, defoilage and green harvest. Very limited and strictly monitored use of fertilizers and chemicals. Vinification: Gentle pressing, natural sedimentation, temperature controlled fermentation at 13° C in stainless steel, one filtration only, ageing in stainless steel. Recommendation: By itself for the unique celebration. Temperature: 8° - 10° Celsius.
