Tasting Notes

The EICHBERG is an earthy, edgy Pinot Gris that reflects the minerality and independence of the black volcanic ash soil. Due to the pressing with the stems, it also receives tannins and a very long reverberation, as well as ripening potential. Because of the long storage on the lees and the filling without filtration, it takes some time to ripen on the bottle to develop its full aroma.

Vineyard, Soil

Originally the Eichberg (engl. oak-mountain) was indeed populated with oak trees. The first vines were planted there in 1820. The Eichberg is exposed from south-east to south-west, with steep slopes up to 50% gradient. The soil consists of weathered volcanic rock and volcanic ash, with a small deposit of loess on the surface. Our vineyards are mainly faced to south-east. This guarantees that the morning sun dries the grapes very early and supports the healthiness of the berries. And the vines are protected from the hot midday sun and prevent an ideal proportion of acidity.
