Am Stein Stettener Stein Silvaner (750ml)
Weingut Am Stein is nestled on the side of the most famous Franconian vineyard, the Würzburger Stein. Ludwig Knoll, together with his wife Sandra, meet all the demands required for the production of superior quality modern German wines; incredible aromatics, purity of flavour, freshness and balance characterize their wines.The winery farms precise parcels where vines with very special character are grown, they have a special potential for maturity and reflect local origins. They also practice biodynamic winemaking so the grapes may grow in harmony with nature.
The Stettener Stein is among the best vineyard sites in Franconia. The core layer is located 80 feet above the River Main on a semicircular section of limestone cliffs. The steep, protected vineyard parcels have a slope of 50-80% and benefit greatly from warm air masses that rise up the rock wall off the river. The very skeletal, barren top floor has a great heat storage capacity and is difficult to root through. This forces the vines over many years to form deep roots, which enter the karst character of the limestone, which gives the wines tremendous mineral complexities and elegance.
This is a wine that is characterized by minerality and bright fruit flavours. On the nose you’ll find gooseberry and grapefruit aromas, which are underlined by ethereal notes. On the palate, the wine presents itself with juicy density. Its creamy aroma and invigorating freshness makes it a unique expression of Silvaner.
