An elegant, smooth-drinking wine from the south-facing, steep slopes of Stigler’s Kaiserstuhl vineyards in Oberrotweil.
Full bodied and long on the palate, the fine mineral nose comes from the volcanic soil of this vineyard. Golden-yellow in colour with fruity notes of apple and pear and the typical Grauburgunder aromas of green grass and hay. This wine is rich and complex with balanced acidity and slight notes of yeast in the finish.
Fermentation was in 1200 litre old wooden casks (so-called Stückfaβ), with storage on the lees for two years.
Oberrotweil is a small wine-growing village situated in the south-western part of the Kaiserstuhl, the area with the highest average annual temperature in the whole of Germany. Volcanic rock and loess terraces are the backbone to the fine wines produced here.
The Romans recognised this two thousand years ago and subsequent generations of vintners and cellar masters have devoted their lives to help create the conditions for production of wine of the very highest quality and Weingut Stigler is no exception.
