Editor note: Translate to English Kühler, nussiger und vegetabiler Duft mit zurückhaltenden gelbfruchtigen Aromen, etwas Holz, gewürzigen Spuren und herber, erdiger Mineralik.

The production area is located in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg in Germany and is divided into southern Baden and northern Baden. It extends almost 400 kilometres from Lake Constance along the Upper Rhine Plain via the Badische Bergstrasse and Kraichgau to Tauberfranken. The vineyards cover an area of 15,828 hectares.
