Estate: The Anheuser family’s winemaking history in the village of Kreuznach in southwestern Germany dates back to 1627. Today the 14th generation, Rudolf and Paul Anheuser proudly continue the family’s tradition. [Yes, THAT Anheuser family; in 1842 Eberhard Anheuser emigrated to America and founded the Anheuser – Busch Brewery.]
Winemaking: Sustainable viticulture methods are used. From the southern facing, Grosse Lage [Grand Cru], 190 year old ‘Krötenpfuhl’ vineyard, with gravelly loam soil. Aged in large oak casks, following bottling, cellar aged at the winery for 29 years.
Tasting Notes: Flinty minerality wraps around apricot, nectarine, pink grapefruit and smoky earth, accented by silky tannins and citrus acidity. Mandarin orange, almond and a trace of white flowers linger between each lush sip.
