Kirchholz 2016

The Kirchholz site borders directly on the Hochäcker site. Only a field path separates them, and yet on this side, the upper soil layer consisting of loam and sandy gravel can be as thick as half a meter, which enhances drainage. In its composition of clay and loam the subsoil is similar to that of the Hochäcker site. Here Blaufränkisch grapes grow on vines which can be up to sixty years old.

To bring out the traits of this rocky soil we have vinifyied the grapes from these sites separately since 2003. The wine is fruitier, bold, lively, and due to the age of the vines it has more character and vibrant tannins.
