Powder hump

single vineyard in the municipality of Oberbergen (Kaiserstuhl area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. It runs in the form of a tongue from the highest point of the Bassgeige at 350 metres above sea level through the heart of this single vineyard. The south to east facing steep vineyard with 20 to 60% slope covers four hectares of vines on heavily pulverised loess on volcanic rock soil. The grapes ripen later here than in the other sites of the Bassgeige. The wines of the Pulverbuck are characterised by mineral tones and a firm acid structure. The Pinot Blanc variety is cultivated here. The Baumgartner Uwe and Keller Franz wineries, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
