Schloss Saarstein is located on a steep slope hill of grey slate, surrounded by the 11 hectares vineyard sites, overlooking the Saar River. The estate owner Christian Ebert takes care of cellar and vineyard all by himself. His wines take profit from the cool microclimate on the Saar and sustainable farming methods.
A mild winter, an early bud break and a hot, dry summer characterize vintage 2015. This year the fall weather was ideal, without the rain and damp conditions of the previous two years to worry about. Picking started on September 29th, with Pinot Blanc, which came in at an ideal must weight and acidity. The Riesling harvest was between October 10th to the 24th, and we brought in grapes up to 100° Oechsle, which will produce a fantastic Spätlese-level, both dry and sweet styles.
