Vines over 40 years old are rooted in 220 million year old unique gypsum keuper rock. The grapes are gently harvested by hand, carefully sorted and slowly pressed after a juice skin contact time of several days. Husarenkappe is defined by a special shelf life and a fascinating character.
Shows a strong straw yellow color. An intense, tension-laden minerality and spicy fruit on the nose, slightly smoky, salty, very complex. The palate is dense, full-bodied, with beautiful richness and a ripe fruit of honey apple, lemon zest, orange and sweet grapefruit. Distinctively strong character with an elegant finish.
