Product Description

Bright yellowish limestone par excellence. Schlossberg is considered the most concise vineyard in Breisgau and has been used for viticulture since 1492. It's a steep slope on a gradient of up to 72% (in the Kapelleberg part up to 96%). It requires purely manual work and the mineral, skeleton-rich soil with bright yellowish limestone is geologically rare within the Black Forest foothills. The main orientation is south to south west. It's an absolutely top location for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Of the vineyard’s 50 hectares, Huber's holdings are 6 ha, of which 5.49 ha are classified as Grosses Gewächs. The 6- to 35-year-old vines are planted with a density 6,250-13,000 vines/ha. The yield here is 28 hl/ha. The steep slope makes for very intense sun radiation. The wines have great inner warmth and depth, a firm structure, pronounced minerality and strong fruit.

Hold onto your hat, because here comes the most amazing Pinot Noir bottled in Germany during modern times! The blackest berries you can imagine are the main feature on the nose, but it's still so delicate and lacking any trace of overripeness. The interplay of concentrated fruit and superfine tannins creates an enveloping impression on the palate, then on the finish the seamless harmony extends in the direction of eternity. You could drink this now, but the 2009 is still youthful and gives an idea of the ageing potential. 98 Points jamessuckling.com, Top 100 German Wines 2018
