Herbs, but also ripe yellow fruit that sometimes drifts off into exotic worlds. Is full-bodied and soft, rounder than the single-vineyard Rieslings, but is bundled with mouth-watering acidity. Appears juicy, mineral and fresh. A long calm river, balanced and engaging. Shows its entire aromatic range on the palate. Has a lively, slightly smoky and fruity finish.

Like the Veltliner, the Riesling Purus is actually a single vineyard wine. It comes from the Seeberg site, which covers a total of 35 hectares and rises to 60 metres in altitude. Although it’s based almost everywhere on mica schist, there are notable differences between the parcels at the foot of the slope and those on the plateau.

Since we have vineyards that are in both the upper and lower areas, we decided early on to press both a representative single vineyard version of the Seeberg and one that builds a bridge from the terrace wines to the single vineyard wines.

The Purus Riesling is vinified from grapes that grow on somewhat young vines on the lower terraces and are essentially a reflection of the warm microclimate. The harvest is therefore a few weeks earlier than that for the single vineyard wine - and even if the smoky and salty notes that characterise the Seeberg are found in both of these wines - the Purus is more playful, more open and firmer.

The location

The Seeberg lies directly across from the Heiligenstein. In both vineyard sites there is, almost without exception, Riesling.  There may be only about one kilometer between their terraces, yet the two are as far apart in geological and sensory terms than as if they were in different hemispheres.

The vines on the Seeberg are south-facing. There is no lack of light and sun here, yet the harvest is usually late in the season. This is a result of the continuously blowing north wind, which provides a cooling counterpoint in the vineyards and keeps the acidity and tension high in the grapes.

The ground

The desert sandstone that dominates the Heiligenstein today is no longer found in the Seeberg; instead, there is garnet mica schist, some of which is permeated by amphibole-rich veins.  The subsoil is crumbly and porous, allowing the vines to root deeply and obtain their nutrients and minerals from the depths of the hill.
