The vineyard site is located on the south-eastern slope toe of the Heiligenstein mountain, and is one of the warmest sites in the wine-growing region. The soil which is calcareous and loamy, has derived from the underlying loess. In the higher parts of the vineyard, towards the Heiligenstein mountain, siltstones and sandstones of the Zöbinger formation, which contain little or no lime, reach close to the surface.
Distinguished, gripping from the start, already astonishingly complex, multifaceted, associations range from lime, ginger to red berry fruit, extremely juicy, distinctive, with a high factor of recognition; simultaneously rich, finely grained: a powerful physique with sweet extract and a wide array of flavors, downright chocolaty generosity, but also packed with dark, spicy fruit and flowing beautifully - above all characterized by the finesse that heralds the development of a great Lamm.
"Impressive notes of flint and complex herbs here with a powerful, greenish array of fruit in behind. The palate delivers a very chiseled, rich and deeply concentrated feel with a toasty, glossy feel to the long, fresh and majestic finish. Drink or hold."
