Wine Varieties

Riesling

Small-berry late-vintage ripened wine variety.
Riesling wines are noted for their rich bouquets, smooth aroma and a fine fruity and spirited acidity. They belong to the noblest wines in the world.

Müller - Thurgau / Rivaner

This variety of grape sorts named after their growers originate from a cross between Riesling and Silvaner. Ripening early with low levels of acidity, they are a mild, florid wine with filmy bouquet.

Pinot Gris / Grauburgunder

Next to Italy Germany is the key Pinot Gris wine growing area. The Pinot Gris is a mutation of the vintage Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder). The grape matures in similar manner. Colour: pale yellow with a green tinge up to gold-yellow. Flavours: pear, honey, pine-apple, grape-fruit, lovage and green bean. Taste: depending on when it is harvested and its degree of ripeness it is a light, fizzy wine with a fine spirited acidity up to a substantial, oily wine. Well suited to ageing in the barrel.

Dornfelder

The Dornfelder is processed mostly dry, partly half-dry. These grapes produce typically deep coloured, dark red wine, which is fruity, full-bodied and mildly acid. Young wines emanate an intensive fruity aroma, similar to that of sour-cherry, blackberry and elderberry. When ‘oak-barrel’ processed a lovely tasting wine with long-term storage attributes ensues.

Elbling

Elbling wine is usually a very light wine. Particularly noticeable is its spirited acidity. It’s true the bouquet is neither full nor dominating, but its fresh fruitiness underlines its character type.
