Single vineyard designation in Germany that refers to an elongated shape of the vineyard.
The vineyards, which lie above the village and face southwest-south, with slopes ranging from 10 to 45%, cover 19 hectares of vineyards. The medium to deep phyllite-slate soils in the western part of the vineyard, with increasing amounts of loess loam in the eastern part, have a good water retention capacity. The best plots are in the middle of the slope. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. The Diefenhardt'sches Weingut and Faust Karl-Werner wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
