Am Stein Montonia Spatburgunder (750ml)
GamePorkWarm Vegetable Dishes
Weingut Am Stein is nestled on the side of the most famous Franconian vineyard, the Würzburger Stein. Ludwig Knoll, together with his wife Sandra, meets the demands required for the production of superior quality modern German wines; incredible aromatics, purity of flavour, freshness and balance characterize their wines.
The Würzburger Innere Leiste is located in a steep valley section on the south side of the former bishop’s residence “Marienberg”. The raw material of the vineyard is ‘mushelkalk’, a sediment layer of calcareous algae and mussels. The clay-containing limestone formed over millions of years contributes to the fact that the soil has a very good heat storage capacity. The stony clay is profound and has an excellent humus supply. This results in a balanced availability of nutrients for the vines. Here, the Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) grows in heat- storing limestone and soaked clay. The wind-protected position of the land and the influence of the microclimate there ensure optimum grape maturity. This wine comes from a VDP.ERSTE LAGE site; a premium first growth vineyard site. The grapes are selectively hand harvested at a maximum yield of 60hl/ha. Aromas and flavours of cherries and red berriers with notes of leather and coffee in the foreground. The wine is dry with ripe well structured tannins and a long finish.
