Our Kreuz offers powerful confirmation of a prediction by Carolin’s father about the potential for Spätburgunder on the Roter Hang: taking advantage of the calcareous soils, old Kerner rootstock were grafted in the 1980s with Pinot Noir clones from Burgundy - at a time when no one cared much for origin or Spätburgunder. Yet the variety is capable of expressing its terroir in ways similar to white wine. Sleek and elegant, Kreuz is known for its marked body and consistent individual expression of the site.
