First introduced in 2013, this village-level Riesling aims to reflect the personality of Pfalz’s most prestigious wine village, Forst. Depending on the vintage, the wine is based on declassified fruit from one or more of the Estate's Grosse Lage (great growth) vineyards. This year, the backbone is made up of fruit from the Ungeheuer Grosse Lage (Great Growth) with some barrels coming from Pechstein and Jesuitengarten. All are great, classified vineyards that are permitted to produce Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru) wines. The basalt-rich soils and the low yields from these sites have generated a Riesling with far more structure, texture and mineral intensity than the entry-level Riesling QbA. Fermented in large dopplestücks (wooden casks) and tank, with seven months on full lees.
