From shallow red slate and very old vines, the Frühlingsplätzchen GG 2022 offers a bright and radiant bouquet with stony and spicy aromas intertwined with notes of crushed slate and lemon peel. Tight, salty and pure but also lush on the palate, this is a very precise, crisp and challenging Riesling with extreme mineral (slate) notes. This vintage will have a long life.

VDP (Verband Deutscher Pradikatsweinguter) Grosse Lage is the denominator for the very best German vineyards, which are precisely defined per plot. The VDP is an important organization with approximately 200 of the best wine growers in Germany. The VDP has mapped the quality of vineyards (and their wines) and divided them into Erste Lage and Grosse Lage, comparable to the Premier Cru and Grand Cru qualifications in Burgundy. With the VDP classification, the classification revolves around terroir rather than must weight. Unique wines with a special expression of the specific plot, a mature character and great maturing potential are born here. Only the very best grape varieties specifically suited to the vineyard enjoy the privilege of being planted for this purpose. The strictest possible production criteria guarantee the top of the VDP qualification pyramid.
