Winemaker's Notes

The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are muscular and complex, with an intense mineral finish. Wines from Erdener Treppchen are more like a powerful, hard-body rock climber than the graceful ballet dancer of Wehlener Sonnenuhr. They benefit greatly from a few years in the bottle to develop fully.

Critical Acclaim

"Taut, with some minty and herbal notes to the broad ripe apple, pear and dried citrus flavors. Heady lavender and tangerine hints stretch out on the finish. Drink now through 2027. 300 cases made."
