The feinherbe Spätelese stems from the "Zuckerberg" plot in the Niedermenniger Herrenberg (AP 4). The vines here are still root-safe and always produce a small number of grapes with a particularly fine aroma. Fresh lemon and grapefruit rise immediately, followed by gooseberry, ginger, and elderflower. The sweetness never appears too sticky in the mouth, but gives body and juiciness. It's perfectly balanced by the electrifying acid. Another fine, feinherbe Spätlese from Webers that will be fun for many years to come.

The Weber family's Hofgut Falkenstein is located in the Konzer-Tälchen, a valley at an old arm of the Moselle. When Erich Weber started making wine here in the early 1980s, his neighbours laughed at him. Erich's abandonment of chemicals in the vineyard and cellar, reduced yields and his hard manual labor in the steep locations were radical at the time. Today, nobody laughs at the Webers anymore. Their wines are often sold out completely within a few days. 'After fifteen tough years, we finally have fifteen good years,' Eric Weber laughs. Bit by bit, Erich and his wife Marita restored the dilapidated estate from 1928. The wines are still as uncompromising today as they were radical at the time. There is not a single steel tank and no elaborate technology found in the Webers' basement. The wines ferment spontaneously, mature slowly and gently in large, decade-old German oak barrels. The Rieslings from Hofgut Falkenstein are characterised by a razor-sharp acid, which gives them a prancing freshness and makes them particularly light. With Erich's second son Johannes, the next generation is now at the helm of the winery.
