The Krone vineyard lies near Laubenheim next to Tesch’s Löhrer berg vines. Geographical proximity is, however, pretty much all these two vineyards share. The steep southeast slope of the Krone is characterized by a mix of light and coarse soils from decalcified loess and weathered sandstone with a high quartz content. This is a very dry site and the lack of water stresses the vines. The 35 year old vines are planted at a density of 6000 per hectare with yields of 57hl/ha. Grapes are harvested by hand in the last week of October.
Expressive Riesling, aromatic with lemon peel and flowers, zippy with grapefruit and surprisingly rich on the finish.
