Wine Information

Biodynamic. The fully ripe grapes of up to 40-year-old vines were harvested on October 4, 2015, spontaneously fermented in steel tanks, left to macerate for 10 hours and on the lees until June 2016 and then bottled.

Tasting notes: Cool and purist. White flowers and peach aromas make the beginning, but mix quickly stony and salty notes. The palate is straightforward and punchy - the primeval rock sends greetings. The acidity is alive and gives structure to the wine. Subtle orange notes are complemented by herbal aromas and embed themselves in a dense and compact body.

Written Notes

Lusciously ripe honeydew melon and pear cavort with snap pea and cucumber in an alluring aromatic display headily capped by lilac, and reunite for a midpalate performance at once sensuously, soothingly creamy and rich, yet not without stimulating crunch. An infectiously juicy and (despite 13.9 percent alcohol) remarkably buoyant finish is transparent to crystalline stony impingements and augmented by deep, mouthwateringly carnal savor. Well under half of his fruit from these terraced old vines at the eastern edge of the Kamptal – which was the epicenter of May 2015’s hail – went into this bottling. (The rest informed “Der Ott”).”Der Stein ist fein,” Ott remarked with a grin. You can say that again!
