Description

Lagenweine are characterized by first-class vineyards with an individual character, where optimal growing conditions prevail. Wines that are awarded the title “Erste Lage” come from these classified wineyard and have at least a late harvest level. The vines root quite deeply in these sites. The soil of the Engehöller Bernstein site therefore gives the dry Riesling its minerality. Brown and gray slate dominate here by almost 100 percent. The connoisseur will notice this in the elegance and the unmistakable peach note of the wine.

Directly opposite the Oberwesel Schönburg castle, the grapes can sunbathe in the southeast exposure of the side valley for a long time. The result is Riesling, which was harvested a little later with 100 degrees Oechsle. This is also the origin of the ripe aromas, which make the wine very harmonious.

Vintage description 2009

2009 a very harmonious wine year. The temperatures were warm, but there were only few heat days. It rained not too much, but always at the right time. The main ripening season and the autumn were warm, which was pleasant to work with and gave the wines a “warm” style. The following winter was also moderate. It was not too cold, but it was enough for a few days of frost (January 2010) to harvest ice wine. All in all a wine year as one wishes as a winemaker, but unfortunately experiences only two to three times in his professional life!
