The domain’s most famous wine with much critical acclaim, this Riesling Grand Cru Pfingstberg 2012 is produced from 55-year-old vines on south-east facing slopes with soils of limestone, clay, sand and pebbles. Bone dry, mineral, elegant with citrus and spice. Vibrant and ready to drink now with some decanting, it is developing power and will keep doing so over the next 15 years. A food lover’s wine, it should be tried alongside seafood, caviar, taboulé, tapas, white meats etc.
James Sucking 94 / 100
“This is a really excellent wine with licorice, stone, lightly cooked pear and flint character. Full body, lots of fruit and a fresh finish. At its peak now. Showing bottle complexity. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Demeter approved.”

Since 1997, the estate has been run in its entirety according to the principles of Bio-Dynamic culture. The vines are mainly worked by hand and a significant amount of time is devoted to caring for the soil
