Herrenberg
Weißburgunder GG*

The location:

The Herrenberg is one of the most famous and best locations in Mittelhaardt. Its special climatic position is based on the south-east orientation of the vineyards. In addition, it is located on the slopes of a hill parallel to the Palatinate Forest, which means that it escapes any influence of cold air. The most interesting parcel in the Herrenberg for Pinot varieties is the "Vogelsang". This ecological niche takes its name from the presence of endangered bird species such as the cuckoo and cirl bunting.

 

The floor:

In contrast to the Buntsandstein that is otherwise predominant on the Mittelhaardt, the Herrenberg soil consists of limestone with a loess-clay layer. This makes the wines from such a location unmistakable: mineral freshness, charming fruit play and a full body ensure the wines have a particularly long life. The deep clay soil is also an ideal location for Pinot varieties.

 

The wine:

HERRENBERG Pinot Blanc GG smells of pear, quince and fresh hay. On the palate it is fruity, creamy and persistent. The great complexity of aromas and the incredible length on the palate are signs of a truly great wine.

  • Drinking temperature: 10-12 °C
