The grapes for this classic Prädikat wines come from the exclusive monopol vineyard Karthäuserhofberg with an optimal orientation to the south-southwest and a slope inclination of up to 55%. The special microclimate and the soil characterised by pink-copper Devonian clay slate make it a paradise for the production of top Rieslings.
The grapes are harvested by hand, then gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel in a controlled process. The wine then matures for six to eight months on the full lees, because time and patience pay off.
