2020 REITERPFAD "In der Hohl" Riesling GGRegular price €34,00
Since the vintage 2014 we are producing again a VDP.Grosses Gewächs in this vineyard „In der Hohl“. Despite the relatively small area of the Reiterpfad, we decided to vinificate the parcel „Hofstück“ and „In der Hohl“ seperate, to reflect the different terroir character of each wine. Contrary to the „Hofstück“ our Reiterpfad „In der Hohl“ shows fine, yellow fruits with delicate minerality.
Millions of years ago, where the western limit of our vineyards lies, there was a huge irruption in the landscape, the Rhine rift. Here the sea deposited its sediments layer by layer. When aeons later the mountains of Haardt range arose in this area, a calciferous sediment block came to light and today determines the unique quality of the soil. The microclimate also contributes to making the wine so special. To the South, West and North, the vineyard is protected by sandstone walls or buildings. This protection has a two-fold positive influence on the wine. The walls protect the vineyard from late frosts and likewise provide natural shade in the summer, thus making its subtle acid structure a striking feature of the Reiterpfad.
