Mineral to the MAX! I think it's time to give this vineyard its due: it's a great Grand Cru site, fully deserving the status of a Wehlener Sonnenuhr or Erdener Prälat. The pity is most of it is worked by the small growers of Zeltingen, amoung whom standards aren't particularly high. Flavors are borealis of slate, buttressed by lime and grassy aspects. Mosel-apple is present but discreet. Medium bodied. If you love Mosels for their cussed Mosel-ness, grab these wines and hang on for dear life!

Wine SpectatorShows good focus to the white cherry, red currant and green apple flavors, flanked by saline and spice notes. Hints of honeysuckle and smoke linger on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2018. 750 cases made.
