The Hollberg vineyard lies north of Siefersheim, situated on a gently wooded hilltop. The nutrient-poor soils are made up of volcanic rocks and rhyolite. It is the warmest and driest of Wagner-Stempel's Rheinhessen vineyards, and thus perfect for Auslese wines. The warm air encourages the onset of botrytis, while the lack of humidity allows a controlled 'noble rot.' The resulting wines are powerful and dense with noticeable minerality and spicy, fruit aromas.
Tons of pineapple, apricots, nectarines and mandarin oranges on the nose. Then, stunning succulence on the palate, the acidity lifting all this extravagance beautifully at the super-long and clean, citrusy finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
