The galley on the label represents the grape vines that have been cultivated on the Altenberg all the way back to Roman times over 2000 years ago. In fact, the vineyard classification listing made by the Prussians in 1868 ranks the Altenberg as one of the nation’s top sites. Today they honour this steep, blue-slate vineyard, dotted with both old Riesling vines and a rich history, with a wine that we consider our ‘private Grosses Gewächs‘ (Grand Cru): An off-dry wine capable of many years of ageing, and marked by both its origins and its native yeast. This wine will continue to sleep ‘sur lie’ (on the fine lees) until summer. A true blockbuster.
