ORTSWEIN

Our ALTE REBEN and ALTE REBEN FEINHERB Ortswein come from our two largest monopole sites, the HERRENBERG and ABTSBERG. They are produced exclusively using grapes from parcels whose vines are at least 35 years old, and a majority are even older.

Wines from the different parcels are first matured individually in small fuder casks, then blended as an Ortswein. The ABTSBERG usually comprises the larger share.

The pair of Ortswein stand out for their elegant tension and marked minerality. In their youth, the wines show a beautiful balance and drinkability that can nonetheless develop over decades.
