Steinbuckel Laumersheim Riesling

Elevation: 130 m
Exposition: south-east
Gradient: 10 %

Microclimate

Gentle south-facing vineyard, cooling breezes mean healthy grapes even when harvested late.

Origins

In 1345 known as ”uff dem Mandelberg“. This refers to the almond trees ( Mandeln ) which are still part of today’s landscape. In 2009 the ”Mandelberg“ vineyard was renamed ”Steinbuckel“ to underline the significance of the most prominent parcel. Before 1971 the parcel ”Halde“ was also a single vineyard.

Soil

The most valuable parcel is situated next to a former limestone quarry and hence possesses barren soil interspersed with small limestone rocks. The parcel "In the Halde“ is loess over limestone.

Characteristic

Dominated by limestone, the Steinbückel Rieslings are extremely mineralic and highly concentrated with great ageing potential. Mature wines show aromas of ripe peach and greengage.
