2017 Zähringer Let The Sunshine In
Demeter certified German madness.
The vineyard is located to the west of the peak of Belchen - the second highest mountain in the Black Forest. In the south stands the more than 1000 years old fortified church of Betberg and in the west the Rhine plain, in the background the Vosges. Zähringer cultivates 4.5 ha of vines. It is a classic "First Growth" set up with about 20% slope. In this top location, they exclusively grow Burgundy varieties as well as Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. This is a straight up fresh and lively blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Carol and Cabernet Franc.
