SOIL : Dominantly granitic with black and white micas. This soil, is rich in mineral elements, and ideal for vine growing.
VINEYARD : From a 45 years old vineyard, the Sommerberg is situated on a very steep slope (45°), face due south, and exceed 400 metres of elevation.
TASTING NOTE : Lovely, intense minerally nose with complex lime fruit, a touch of honey and some spice. Rich but bone dry palate with lovely mineral extract and intensity. Quite tight with good acid structure; good potential for development.
AGEING POTENTIAL : 8-10 years
David’s notes: Notes of lemon, lime, pear and pineapple. Open and fruit-driven with lovely florals. Mineral acidity, no petroleum characters as it ages because of the granite. Very fragrant and open. Steep slope, south facing, converting to organic. 45-50 year old vines.
