Situated directly adjacent to the Erdener Prälat, the Erdener Herzlei is already listed as a top vineyard site in the first official vineyard classification of 1868. With its five steep slate terraces that climb up the steep slope, the Herzlei has always been one of the best vineyards on earth and the core of the historic Erdener Treppchen. The up to 127 year old, rootless Riesling vines grow here on very sparse, grey slate soil. The Herzlei Spätlese Goldkapsel (monopollage) shows a wonderful exotic Näs'chen with fascinating fruit aromas of mango, ripe melon, star fruit, apricot, candied orange peel and spicy oriental scents. On the palate again juicy, lush exotic fruit with smoky nuances and a little minty freshness. The elegant golden play of fruit and sweetness is spanned by a long acid bow. Under all fruit some salt and the slight pungency of candied ginger. Spätlese of classic kind, needs time!
