The sandy vineyard site, Herrenholz is named after the surrounding forest. The soil has a high content of sand and limestone, amounting to low grape yields and slow growth for these thirty year old vines. Mineral flavors from the soil can be tasted in the grapes, providing the wine with a lovely, rich and fine bouquet filled with delicate yet varied accents.

Tasting Notes

Medium green color. Inviting spicy aromas with intense mineral background. Lovely apple and grapefruit notes accompanied by fresh and crispy acid structure.  

Food Pairing

Pair with a fresh seafood salad, ceviche, or mashed potato puffs stuffed with gruyere cheese.
