Grape:  Silvaner - traditional for Rheinhessen, more than 350 years old, can produce some of the very fines, top quality grapes.
 
Terroir:  Loam and clay. Heavy soil with excellent absorptive capacity for rain water. Hillside shaped as a horse-shoe, thus perfect protection from heavy weather conditions.
 
Quality:  Prädikatswein - Eiswein. Grapes gathered at minus 10° C, freezing the juice inside the berries to solid ice and squeezing the skins rapidly before the ice melts, sacrificing 90% of the normal harvest quantity. This bottle contains the juice of approximately 1 kg of grapes!
 
Taste: Golden colour, rich taste, character and noble natural sweetness - highest concentration. 
 
Analysis: 9 % Alc., 155 g/l residual sweetness, 11,5 g/l fruit acidity
 
Viticulture: Natural cultivation following officially controlled measures (DLG). Reduced pruning, defoilage and green harvest. Very limited and strictly monitored use of fertilizers and chemicals.
 
Vinification: Gentle pressing, natural sedimentation, temperature controlled fermentation at 13° C in stainless steel, one filtration only, ageing in stainless steel.
