It's the first-class Franconian site, "Julius-Echter-Berg", where fantastic wines such as their Silvaner Grand Cru comes from. It ranks among their best - you will taste it!
This SIlvaner has an intense bouquet and a full body. At the moment it is still a bit closed in taste, but already presents an astonishing range of flavours: Fine hints of yellow fruit, spicy aroma and a clear and distinctive mineral tone, very typical for their Silvaners, making this wine a true indulgence. In comparison to its preceding vintage of 2015 it features a cool elegant and finesse.
To create such a premium wine a great deal of work was necessary in both the wine cellar and the vineyard. In the early stage of ripeness, for example, they divided each grapes to ensure perfect conditions for the future vegetation process and the reduce the number of grapes on the vine. Enabling the growth and efficiency of the vine to concentrate on the free grapes left.
Indeed, as a young wine, this Grand Cru is already their pure indulgence! However, its best times are yet to come. In about 10 years it will have reached its peak. A mature wine devotee will open it in the 20 years' time with the greatest pleasure of experiencing its aromas which will then have developed to perfection.
