In 2008 the vegetation period was without extremes with an even distribution of rainfall, budding at the
end of April and flowering in mid-June. The ripening stretched until September and October. The
harvest began on October 17 with careful pre-selections and continued on until November 13. After
fermentations have stopped, the Riesling – young wines from the vintage 2008 – taste racy, elegant, and
delicately fruity. Lots of finesse and crystal-clear brilliance promise drinking pleasure and lots of aging
Marked by the intensive spice of the wild yeast, powerful characteristic of the slate soil.
