Vineyard: The VDP.Ortswein derives from the Winkler sites of Hasensprung and Gutenburg. The vines that grow on strong loam and loess soils are 25-40 years old.
Wine: Grippy body with fine, beastly structure and a full-bodied harmonious acidity. Fine creamy texture, lingering finish, intense aromatic profile. A wine with maturing potential.
The VDP.Ortsweine serve as a link between the uncomplicated estate wines and the powerful site wines. All grapes come from one local area and reflect the predominant soil types in their character. The maturing of the wine in "Doppelstück" wooden barrels (2,400l) fits to the powerful Winkeler soils. Spontaneous fermentation and eleven months on the wood barrel and on the yeast lees make this wine become a Riesling bursting with character.
Food recommendation: With a snack. Pasta with seafood, salad with fried fillet strips.
