A brilliant example of the field blend Altenberg is famous for. This is also one of only two wines (with his Riesling Rangen) Schaal puts in his special black label bottle – as he considers it “the grandest of the grands.”

Riesling and Gewurztraminer are planted, picked and vinified together. And the result is a wine that’s sumptuous and effusive, yet also fresh and bright. Schaal says:

Rich and mouthcoating. Honey, baked apple and cinnamon flavors easily glide across the palate, buttressed by just enough acidity to keep it from becoming cloying. Might be best with foie gras or cheese. Drinkable now, but should age effortlessly. 

Not as sweet as the Deiss version, but every bit as complex and fine. One of the great wines of Alsace.
