      Tasting Notes
      In the westernmost corner of the Franconian wine region, framed by the low mountain ranges of Spessart and Odenwald, unique conditions have been created by time and weather. Here the Fürst Family have been making wine since 1638. In 1979 Paul and Monika Fürst built the new estate amidst the vineyards and in 2007 they were joined in its management by their son Sebastian.

      Facing due south and overlooking the picturesque towns of Miltenberg and Bürgstadt the slopes of the Centgrafenberg are home to most of the vines. The Pinots and Riesling especially love the warm and iron rich soils formed by the weathering of red sandstone. The quality and struture of the wines is ensured by minimal intervention in the vineyards, reduced yields, gentle vinification and long barrel aging.

      After fermentation on the skins in open vats, the red varieties are left in french oak barrels for 12 to 20 months to mature and settle. All red wines are bottled unfiltered. Lowtech vinification assures each wine gets the necessary time to develop.

      "Released November 2017. Very pale, slightly greyish garnet. Spicy nose. Ripe rather than ethereal but very solid with some tannin. Slightly dry finish. 16/20 points. Drink 2019 – 2022."
      (Jancis Robinson MW, www.jancisrobinson.com, 26 Mar 2018)
