Write a Review

The name comes from the Mosel dialect and means “small chestnut grove”. This refers to chestnuts that were once brought and planted by the Romans. The location is a little higher, airy and open far to the south, and the grey slate gives the wine a mineral spice. The 2018 was harvested late. Many old rootless vines bring a certain filigree to the wine. A little bit of mashing time was added. Thus the wine has an earthy tautness and depth, and on top of it small yellow fruits appear.
