The vines here are around 35 years old face south, at around 310-340m, on soils formed out of the remains of the reed beds on the floor of an ancient sea: crumbly, alkaline and laden with quartz and other mineral deposits. They yield a wine that is intensely linear and snappy, with a zesty, limestone infused finish.  It isn’t often that one finds oneself craving oysters with Riesling, but with this one, it suddenly makes sense.
