Bremmer Calmont –a “hot mountain” with mineral slate soil for delicate wines with dignified fruit flavours
The gigantic amphitheatre of the Bremmer Calmont with it’s 380 metre towering rock face already in roman times was accurately related as “calidus mons” – the hot mountain.
The temperature inside this concentrating reflector of southerly expositioned, well aereated steep slopes in the summer reaches mediterranean hights. Combined with the microclimate the meager quartzite, ferruginous sandstone and slate soil offers almost perfect conditions for the “queen of grapes”, the Riesling.
The wines of this terroir present themselves filigree and with dignified fruit flavours. The mineral aromas embossed by the vineyard’s special soil more and more abound with a longer storage.
