In the sun-drenched Kaiserstuhl region with its extremely diverse soils, the Steingrubenberg vineyard parcel is a special spot. On this top location of the Salweys, the Pinot Blanc grapes for this "Großes Gewächs" (VDP Große Lage) thrive on deep-rooted, over thirty years old vines on weathered, porous volcanic rock.
A luminary of Burgundy grapes, Konrad Salwey is a master at bringing this unique terroir into the bottle. His Große Gewächse are expressive, aromatic character wines with a full-bodied melting quality, great presence and purity. For each wine, based on its location and vintage, a decision is made as to the kind and duration of the ageing period in wood and in the bottle until perfect. Unsurprisingly, such top-class creations quickly garner the attention of local and international wine critics and garner well-deserved hymns of praise.
The Salwey Weißburgunder Steingrubenberg GG is concentrated, powerful and elegant, vinified in a dry style with a lively acid structure and a creamy mouthfeel, which it owes to its extended maturation in oak barrels. Citrus tones shape the complex aroma profile of the wine, there are also hints of apples, flowers and white tea. Mineral, spicy and subtle smoky notes form an exciting spectrum. Pair this fine wine with light Mediterranean cuisine such as fish dishes or ratatouille.
