A strong body surrounded by aromas of rosewater and cloves. The Forster Ungeheuer plot is on edge of the most distinctive and well-known sites in the Palatinate Region. It produces powerful and long lived wines with a savoury minerality. Towards the end of  the 1880s, when Imperial Chancellor Prince Otto von Bismarck was a guest of the Vice President of the Reichstag, winery owner Franz Armand Buhl, he stated “This monster tastes monstrous to me” making the plot a world famous site. Von Buhl is the sole owner of the Ungeheuer vineyard, which served as the namesake for this VDP.Grosses Gewächs

Soil:
Complex is the best way to describe the soil structure of this praised site in the Mittelhaardt region. Typical sandstone weathering with a denser layer of clay and sand, partly mixed with limestone while the basalt rock provides the vines with the necessary warmth and minerality. At a depth of 2 meters, a massive limestone plate provides an ideal water supply. The sum of all these factors is the reason for the mightiness and length of the wines from this “monster”.
