Hand-picked from a very small parcel at the foot of the estate’s wholly-owned Serriger Würtzberg. These vines do not have grafted root stock, which is a rarity these days post phylloxera, and is something found in only a handful of vineyards in the Saar and Mosel valleys. Planted in 1944, each vine grows on its own stake with two canes bent into a heart shape and are the oldest vines at the winery.
The grapes were harvested when perfectly ripe and therefore have exceptional aromatic fruitiness, with grapefruit and gooseberry on the nose, whilst on the palate there’s an explosion of a basket of exotic fruits such as mango, litchi, cantaloupe and honeydew melon.
This is a powerful, fruity Riesling with a sweet touch.
“Lovely fruits and herbs on the nose. The palate is great vibrancy, urgency and mineral freshness.” (James Suckling; 90 points)
