A lovely, sweet riesling, with amazing length! Made from ungrafted wines, 30% of the grapes are affected by noble rot. Wonderfully balanced acidity makes this a delight to drink.

A historic engraving of the Zeltingen vineyards from around the year 1900 adorns the labels of the brothers Peter and Ulrich Griebeler, who by showing this also want to highlight their long family tradition. Both learned the winemaking profession at renowned estates, Peter with Fritz Haag, Ulrich with Müller-Catoir. Peter then studied viticulture, and Ulrich continued with higher education as a wine technician at home and abroad. In 2014 the brothers took over the three-hectare family estate, expanded it to the seven hectares they have today and are now the eleventh generation to run the business. Half of their vines grow on steep slopes in well-known Zeltingen locations like the Sonnenuhr, Schlossberg and Himmelreich. Riesling dominates covering four-fifths of the area, the rest is made up of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Müller Thurgau and Dornfelder. Development takes place in traditional large oak barrels and also stainless steel.
