This is a remarkable pure and saline Riesling that is superbly concentrated, dense and intense on the palate with enormous depth and polish.
The name hell (Hölle) does not come from the hereafter, but derives from the old Middle High German word for a heap, in modern parlance it has the meaning of ‘steep mountain’.
This pure southern slope extends like a long belt directly on the banks of the Main. The approximately 50-year-old vines grow on very heavy clay soil, which gives the wines great character.
Drink through 2050.
