Erdener Treppchen translates to 'The Little Staircase of Erden', and is aptly named as the vineyard is so steep that long ago, stone steps were built into the hillside to enable workers to reach the vines. The site is filled abundant with iron-rich, red slate soil with a firm mineral structure. The vines themselves are over 100 years old and are planted to their own rootstock. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel and the process is stopped by chilling.
Aromatically the wine is flinty and clean, with additional notes of white flowers. The palate is full and creamy, with notes of grapefruit, and crunchy orchard fruits as well as a long, mineral driven finish that promises longevity.
