Description

The vineyards of the Rheingau rise gently up the lower foothills of the Taunus Mountains along the Rhine River. At almost exactly the 50° latitude mark, the Rhine chooses a 25-kilometer east-to-west course. In the east – from Hochheim to Rüdesheim – deep-reaching, fine sandy soils influence the characters of the wines. In the west – from Rüdesheim to Lorch – meager soils, often with a high slate content, lend the wines their distinctive properties. The microclimate in Assmanshausen guarantees a bud break up to 4 weeks earlier than in other vineyard locations, resulting in a longer vegetation period. The grapevines use this extra time to gather more flavour content. The slate soils and the perfect south and southwest orientation of the extremely steep slopes augment the degree of warmth in the vineyards dramatically, which yield intense, spicy and yet elegant red Pinot Noir wines.

TASTING NOTES

Blackcurrant, Plum and Blueberries on the nose. On the palate, the texture of this balanced red wine is wonderfully velvety. Due to the moderate fruit acidity, it has a velvety mouthfeel, without missing out on juicy liveliness. In the finish, good length and echoes of plum and blackcurrant
