The Riesling vines find perfect conditions on the steep slopes creating a perfect angle to the sun rays.
The soil consists of beautiful blue, highly decomposed slate rocks, that give the wines their great mineality, leading to an appealing somewhat salty finish.
For this négociant bottling, Nik Weis sources the fruit from his neighbors in Mehring, where the slopes are steep and covered in blue slate. He gives the fruit a short soak before pressing, hoping to extract extra aroma and flavor, then vinifies the wine entirely in stainless steel. In 2018, that process yielded a pretty riesling, full in texture yet brisk and fresh, with a crystalline clarity to its stony lime flavors.
