This is Germany’s oldest wine producer with monks having planted vines there already in the 1130’s. The grapes for this wine are coming from a vineyard named Steinberger that has been owned by Kloster Eberbach for 800 years. Using Riesling grapes, the vineyard is producing everything from dry wines, semi-sweet to sweet wines and Riesling is the only grape variety that be used for all these different styles.
Wine production and terroir
On the steep southern slopes, the soil is dominated by slate and gravel, which produces wines with clear minerality. This
Beerenauslese is made from a selection of the best grapes. The old
vines in combination with low harvest yields add intensity, depth and
complexity. The year 2011 offered a hot and dry spring followed by a cool summer. During September the weather was stable and remained so for most of the autumn. The conditions left a fantastic harvest which, after careful selection, yielded ripe fruit and botrytis with a fine balance between exquisite fruity, sweetness and elegant acidity.
Notes of yellow apricots, apples, mango and honey. The high acidity makes it a fresh and well-balanced wine.
