Energizing and full of exotic flavours. Honeydew melon dominates the nose, at the palate pineapple takes over – always accompanied by a bit of pepper and delicate stony touch. The deep minerality has its origin in the stony soils of the Spitzer Graben, where the grapes for this Federspiel grow. The creamy and juicy texture is balanced by vivid acidity; the body is precise, elegant and dense.
“I believe in a long vegetation period because the grapes accumulate additional aromas and extracts in the last weeks before the harvest. I do not trust in simple sugar analyses but taste the grapes before I harvest them and I am a firm believer in perfect balances and good acidity levels.” H.P.
