    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas of citrus, lime and grapefruit, balanced with ripe acidity and stony mineral notes. Taste of ripe fruit combined with fresh elegance. The key words for vintage 2011 at Saarstein were "early" and "just right." Christian Ebert, of Weingut Schloss Saarstein, says, "For our estate we can say that 2011 is one of the best vintages of the last decades quality-wise."

    Critical Acclaim:

    Christian Ebert farms 25 vertiginously steep acres of grey slate falling away from his castle on the Saar. His old vines produced a compact 2011, a wine that needs time to unravel to show all of its complexities. Right now, it's a tight ball of yellow peach fruit held in a fine mesh of acidity and minerality. The wine’s vibrancy stays with you long after each sip.
