Saumagen Riesling GG

Classification
VDP.Große Lage

Variety:
100% Riesling

Origin:
One of the most famous Grand Cru sites in the Pfalz region. Marl lime mixed with countless small limestone rocks characterizes the soil in this small basin, facing south/south-east. Here, the vines can flourish in best conditions.

Vineyard work:
Buckwheat, radish and clover aerate the soil and attract useful animals. Horse dung fertilizes the soil naturally. We take off leaves selectivly and work with low yields.

Vinification:
Hand harvested and whole-cluster pressed. Wild yeast fermented and aged on the lees in stainless steel and big wooden casks.

Character:
Very mineral, with chalky texture and a long aging potential
