Special characteristic
  • Contains sulphites

Selective manual harvest of overripe grapes. Gentle pressing followed by fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel. Long maturation on the fine lees to lend extra suppleness, texture and complexity.

Slightly reductive nose of pear, pineapple and mint. Lovely attack – fresh and incredibly complex. Long, stimulating finish with a subtle note of botrytis.

'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.
