The grapes were grown in the most famous single site in Münster-Sarmsheim named Dautenpflänzer. The difficult mane of the site is a pleonasm, because Dauten means young seedling and Pflänzer just the same. We own 1,2 of 3,6 ha, the exposition is strictly sough, the vineyard is steep 20-30%, the group is covered with gravels of red quartzite slate.
The age of the vineyard is more then35 years, the yield is not more than 45 hl/ha, the grapes were harvested in the last week of October, totally ripe green berries with red cheeks. The wine was fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel and matured in a huge wooden cask made of nearby Nunsrück oak. The output was 2000 bottles.
Food recommendation: Goes well with light meat, lean pork, and veal.
