Owned by Christine Lucas, sister to Nik Weis, this estate produces outstanding Riesling from important vineyard sits in the Pfalz. This estate was established 50 years ago and has a much warmer climate than the Mosel with different soil. The wines tend to be drier in style with a bit higher alcohol levels. Located in the Rhine valley and protected by the north and west by the Hunsrueck Mountains. That is what makes the climate there almost Mediterranean. The soil is heavier and less stony than the Mosel. They do not have slate like in the Mosel. Instead, they have volcanic, glacial and river sediments, which is why the wines are not as mineral, but have fuller bodies. In general, they have less acidity and more roundness. THe flavors are more on the peachy side, rather than grapefruit.
