BattenfeldSpanier is located in Hohen-Sülzen in the southern Wonnegau of Rheinhessen. There, the best vineyards are criss-crossed by mighty subterranean limestone beds, from which the vines can suck the important nutrients with their roots during the warm summer months. It is this "lime buffer" that adds a tremendous amount of tension and vibration to the wines of Battenfeld-Spanier. For HO Spanier, the Riesling is like the ideal interpreter who translates the extremely lime-rich soils of southern Wonnegaus into wine. And that is what interests him: the spectrum of aromas of the stones and the soil, located beyond the perishable fruit. Dancing minerals. Saline origin character. Feuerstein.
