The vines on this steep, four-hectare vineyard are now between 40 and 60 years old. At up to 300 metres, this is the highest of the three Weil hillside sites, yet thanks to its southern aspect and deeper, iron-rich weathered slate soils, it also produces the most opulent and seductive of these wines (when young). The Weil team often use the term ‘baroque’ when describing wines from Klosterberg, in reference to the lift and generosity. There are some similarities in character with the Kiedricher but there is a kick up in the intensity and drive on the finish.
Raised entirely in doppelstückfass the 2020 was aged on the full lees until late July for the first time (instead of April, like in the former vintages).
