Graach is a small village that lies between Bernkastel and Wehlen. This vineyard's steep, southwest-facing slopes and deep soils produce wines that combine the elegance of Wehlen with the rustic strength of Bernkastel. The site has abundant blue slate within the soil, creating an almost forceful minerality. The youngest vines used for this bottling are 100 years old, and all are ungrafted. After harvest the grapes ferment with indigenous yeasts and are kept in the barrel, on the full lees, for a year before it is bottled.
Aromatically the wine has notes of flint, white chalk, barely ripened peaches, and a hint of lemon zest. On the palate the wine is acid driven, with juicy fresh peaches and a salted herbaceous-ness that lingers.
