Weingut Horst Sauer Escherndorfer Lump Silvaner GG 2017

12% abv

Grapes for the ‘Am Lumpen’ wines are carefully selected from the steepest parts of the Escherndorfer Lump vineyard – a directly south-facing precipitous slope with limestone soil and vines that are over 30 years old. This ‘Am Lumpen’ site was first referenced in 1655, and is Horst Sauer’s most premium ‘Grosse Lage’ site – the classification for the very best German vineyards. The terroir produces long lived wines with an unmistakeable concentration of fruit. The 100% Silvaner grapes are selected in the vineyard, hand-harvested around the start of October, and undergo a gentle pressing before spontaneous fermentation takes place. The wine remains on its fine lees until the summer of the following year.

An impressive and powerful Silvaner; citrus, floral aromas but opens up on the palate with an almost almond bitterness, salty savoury minerality, yet retains a cool core of acid bringing all the elements together.

Weingut Horst Sauer is named after its owner. Both Horst and his daughter Sandra (who joined the winery in 2004) are winemakers at their 37 hectare estate in Franken - situated near Wurzburg (between Frankfurt and Nuremberg). Eight different grape varieties are planted, including Riesling, Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau. Their vineyards are focused around the 'Erste Lagen' (prime) sites of Escherndorfer Lump and Escherndorfer Fürstenberg. Escherndorfer Lump is a steep south-facing slope protected from cold north-eastern winds, with a top layer of limestone-rich soil. Escherndorfer Fürstenberg is an east-facing vineyard which borders the Lump site to the east and west.They also have the exquisite Escherndorf am Lumpen - a 'Grosse Lage' vineyard plot (a classification given to the best German vineyard sites) first recorded in 1655. This is on the steepest slopes of the Escherndorfer Lump vineyard where the vines are over 30 years old.Their winery was modernised in 2006 - and is gravity-fed and architecturally stunning, with vineyard rising steeply to the rear.
