PRODUCER: Since 1578, the Stodden family has committed to viticulture in the Ahr valley. "Doing everything in harmony with nature to bring wine to perfection" is the philosophy of the family. During the pruning, they work towards the goal "quality instead of mass". If the vine still produces too many fruits, additional green grapes are cut out in the summer. Late hand picking and strict sorting are just as natural as the gentle processing of the grapes, which find their perfection in oak barrels and barriques.
WINEMAKING: The Sonnenberg is predominantly composed of a skeleton-rich conglomerate consisting of Greywacke to Grauwackeschiefer, mixed with clay shares over Gehängelehm to Ioess and Lösslehm. The mash time is 17 days. The expansion takes place for 18 months in new barriques, then the wine is bottled unfiltered.
TASTING NOTE: The wine smells of strawberries, blackberries and violets, plus a little leather and vanilla. The palate is compact, voluminous and juicy. The finish is long and elegant at the same time.
