With only 8 rows of Grüner planted at our place, each vintage is produced in a very limited amount. The cold 2021 Spring caused late and extended flowering into December. This together with windy conditions resulted in hen and chicken throughout the crop, reducing the overall yield for 2022.
The nose has honeysuckle, white peach, white pear and bee’s wax. The palate shows wet slate minerality, nutmeg, textural layers and a nougat finish.
