'Hollenberg' derives from the old German word meaning 'heap' or 'precipice'. This steep vineyard is almost entirely violet-coloured slate and stone - similar to that found in the Steinberg vineyard. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, and is then matured in 1,200 and 2,400 litre oak barrels for around 24 months.
Beautifully lifted, ripe, wild, red berry fruit with lightly spicy notes on the nose. Whilst the palate has bright redcurrant, and red cherry fruit, subtle toast from the oak, refreshing juicy acidity all wraped in fine, silky tannins.
Serve with braised meats or venison.
