This late harvest wine has a brilliant body and a crystal clear fruit palate of cassis and peach, combined with an elegant and very fine sweetness.
The heavy clay vineyard soil creates vigorous and almost timeless wines with an irrepressible vitality that continues to win hearts and palates.
The Hoelle (meaning Hell in German) vineyard actually has nothing to do with fire and brimstone, but derives from the High German word ‘Halde’ or steep hill. In 1273, the entire area, together with all its inhabitants, was sold to the Archbishopric of Mainz. The hillside east of the historic city of Hochheim (from which the English generic word ‘Hock’ for German white wine comes) descends on a hugely steep 15% slope towards the River Main.
