Impeccable spätlese from the ancient walled Steinberg vineyard.

Intense floral, honeysuckle aromas with a touch of citrus and some evolved Riesling characters. The palate is pure and focused with ripe, honeyed fruit flavours, and bright citrus acidity balancing the luscious sweet palate.

The monastery at Kloster Eberbach in the Rheingau was established by Cistercian monks from Burgundy in 1136, bringing with them vines and expertise, and laying the foundation for Pinot Noir production in Germany. Today the estate, managed by Dieter Greiner, covers 200 hectares (150ha planted to Riesling and 30ha to Pinot Noir) and as a founding member of the VDP (Germany's finest estates) it is acclaimed by journalists worldwide. The estate's vineyard sites along the Rhine are managed by Stefan Seyffardt, including the monopoles of Steinberg, Centgericht and Neroberg.

The Steinberg vineyard is closely associated with the Kloster Eberbach monastery. In the early 13th century they built a wall around the area - creating a perfect microclimate. This wall was extended in 1766. The vineyard soil is very deep with quartz stones and slate. The wall serves to protect the vines from the cold air of the Taunus valley.

Perfect with desserts and cheese.
