Schellenbrunnen lives from the combination of a delicate, ripe, yellow fruit with a deep minerality and a lively acidity. Fine Riesling bouquet of lemons and ripe apples, underpinned by orange peel and subtle spice. Clear and clean on the palate.
To poached and fried fish, white meat, salads and Asian dishes.
The 8 ha Schellenbrunnen site is located directly above the wine village of Tiefenbach and is Heitlinger's Riesling monopollage. The steep south-facing site (up to over 60%) with old vines (average over 40 years) is characterized by very barren, iron-rich variegated marl and some stubby sandstone in the upper part. The special topographical situation on a wind-open, forward part of the hill range with an altitude of up to 260 m is to be emphasized. The grapes are gently harvested by hand, carefully sorted and slowly pressed after a juice skin contact time of several days.
