The Brunnenhäuschen site is situated east of Morstein and above the Steingrube site. Due to its altitude, grapes ripen slowly and harvesting usually takes place after a very long growing season. The finest portion of Brunnenhäuschen is in the old parcel known as “Abtserde.” There is half a hectare of Riesling here. This site is marked by clayish marl that is rich in limestone. Due to a high iron oxide content, parts of the soil are reddish in colour, also referred to as “terra rossa.” The subsoil is interspersed with large limestone rocks. The GG wine comes from only 3 rows of grapes - very rare...??

"Maybe this isn’t the most powerful dry riesling on planet Rheinhessen, but it is an exceedingly beautiful example with fine apricots and a cool, very filigree finish for this rather warm region. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold."
