    Rich fruit notes reminiscent of orange zest, peach and apricot, rounded off with notable minerality on the finish. Powerful and full-bodied, yet elegant too. This wine has a long aftertaste. Pure pleasure with each sip.

    The year started very wet with what seemed like three months of non-stop rain.
    Spring was warm and dry – ideal conditions for an early bud burst.
    Continuation: In Summer weather improved day by day. Only our youngest vines were a little less happy, as their roots have not yet reached the necessary depth to get through dry periods completely unscathed.
    When harvest-time came nature spoiled us with heavenly conditions and a “golden autumn”. Our fruit was outstanding at all quality and Prädikat wine levels. We were fortunate enough to select Trockenbeerenauslesen – the pinnacle of any vintage – from a number of different sites. The extra warmth resulting in exceptional levels of ripeness, flavour and minerality as well as excellent quantities.
    Summary: A sun-blessed year of superlatives!
