Jürgen's "house Großes Gewächs": A Riesling of depth, richness and complexity, juxtaposing minerality and salinity with ripe yellow and tropical fruits. The grapes come exclusively from the steep southern-facing slopes of the Appenheimer "Hundertgulden" vineyard, whose 'big money' name inspired the label illustration. Shell limestone from the Tertiary period characterizes the soil of this, their oldest vineyard (50 years of age).
Clear scent of ripe apricots with notes playful perceived minerals. Aromas of ripe tropical fruits and yellow. Opulent in the mouth, densely structured, salty, chalky, with a playful and zesty finish.
