Brückstück is Devonian blue slate with clay, sandstone and volcanic pumice. The majority of Knebel’s holdings are mid-slope in the lieu-dit of Sternberg. Round to rich in texture, and touch off dry, it displays ripe orchard fruit, mango, and passionfruit with intense mineral cut, flint spark, and a touch of petrol. A fine balance between ripe fruit, savory flavors, and minerality. With this kind of power, Brückstück feels more like a Fall or Winter cuvee and will get better with some further aging. This was fermented in steel and the spontaneous fermentation stopped naturally at 17.2 grams/L, so that’s how the 2015 was bottled.

From the importer:

The Knebel family has been growing grapes in the village of Winningen since 1643 but the current incarnation of this estate is relatively young having been established by Rheinhard and Beate Knebel in 1990. Now led by their son, 34 year-old dynamo Matthias, the Knebel name has become synonymous with the revolution of quality winemaking in Germany over the last 15 or 20 years. Today, Matthias is working 6.5 hectares of vines in some of the steepest, most foreboding terraces in the world of viticulture. Sustainably grown.
