Wine information

The wine comes from the single vineyard Kirchenstück in Hohen-Sülzen. This vineyard was mentioned as early as before the Thirty Years' War, so it has been under vines for more than 400 years. The slope of 150 meters with a gradient of 15 % is characterized by clayey calcareous stones, which you can grind in your hand. Thus, the vines have a very good supply of nutrients and the minerals from the highly calcareous subsoil are translated directly.

Of the great growths from the house of Battenfeld-Spanier is the Church piece usually the most accessible and open from the beginning. Whether one can also say that in 2017, may be discussed. On the nose, the Riesling still seems chastened in its cool, restrained way, but decidedly sexy. The wine is reminiscent of crisp yellow apples, salt lemons and mirabelles. The herbal aromas and the slightly tobacco spicy note are particularly striking.


On the palate the Church piece The wine is divided into different levels of fruit, spice and soil. It is an interplay of pressure and power on the one hand and creaminess and melting on the other, between which the Riesling oscillates. The wine is firm and dry with slightly friable tannin. The fruit is crisp yellow and juicy, the acidity taut, and it carries the energetic minerality. This is wonderfully intense and complex, as with air and warmth the wine becomes deeper and tighter, while also becoming more oily and herbal. This is a great wine, no question about it.
