This vineyard is so steep that, long ago, stone steps were built into the hillside to help workers reach the vines. The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are muscular and complex, with an intense mineral finish. Wines from Erdener Treppchen are more like a powerful, hard-body rock climber than the graceful ballet dancer of Wehlener.
The Erdener Treppchen ("The Little Staircase of Erden" )vineyard is so steep that long ago, stone steps were built into the hillside to enable workers to reach the vines. This is an elegant yet muscular wine with succulent ripe citrus & stone fruit aromas and vibrant minerality. Makes an ideal aperitif and an excellent partner for any meal!
A rich, juicy, crisp and intense Riesling with aromas of lemon and peach and concentrated flavours of lime, honeysuckle, and jasmine and a delicious finish of stony minerality. Well-balanced and endlessly refreshing!
