"The Wittmanns own about 10 acres of this limestone-rich vineyard, farmed biodynamically since 2004. The wine itself has a cool, chalky texture, with the airiness of seashell-ridden stone. The heat of the alcohol spices the ripe lemon and pineapple flavors, and yet the wine comes off as fresh and lean, with a salty finish that encourages another sip. Give it another eight years in the cellar, at least." –Dec 2015
Wittmann's vineyards lie between 600-720 feet on the south-facing slope of Morstein. Its soils consist of limestone covered by clay. The thin topsoil allows the vines to penetrate deep into the rocks resulting in a wine that is impressively complex with purity and multi-layered finesse.
