Character

The weather was patchy in the first half of the year. After a mild winter, springtime temperatures kept fluctuating, while rain in June gave the vines just the amount of water they needed. A warm summer with plentiful sun, followed by a cold September, allowed the grapes to reach a good ripeness while preserving their acidity. The wines of 2015 have abundant charm, showing fresh fruit aromas combined with spritzy acidity.

Winemaking

Hand-picked and hand-selected grapes. Gentle pressing followed by wild-yeast fermentation. Long maturation on the fine lees to maximise texture and complexity.

Terroir

'Himmelreich' is German for kingdom of heaven – and this vineyard's sunny aspect is distinctly divine. Soils with high clay content lend the wines a strikingly assertive character. Thanks to the prevailing topography, the vines are sheltered from wind and frost. This quick-warming terroir helps the grapes to ripen evenly and fully. Numerous veins of underground moisture provide the vines with an ideal source of water.
