The lone white of the estate is from a steeply-sloped, north-facing parcel just below the winery, an an elevation of 500 meters. It is 70% Riesling and 30% Gewurztraminer, which is co-fermented in a large wood vat after a 5-day maceration. After 24 to 30 months in a mix of large barrels, it spends a year in bottle. The resulting wine is rich in material and texture, with a freshness and acidity that speaks to both the dominant Riesling character and the mineral soil.
