Balanced and integrated, this offers peach, nectarine, spice and mineral aromas and flavors matched to a firm, succulent profile. Well-balanced, it has a long finish of peach and wet stone.
The name Nussbrunnen originates from a well formerly surrounded by nut trees, implying that this vineyard site, which is considered one of the very best in the region, has a good water supply. The highly-regarded site sits on a hillside with southern exposures in the village of Hattenheim at the east entrance above the railroad tracks. It contains deep, sandy-loam soils which yield wines of great depth, complexity, and age-worthiness.
