The village of Wachenheim lies at the center of the esteemed “Mittelhaardt” area of the Pfalz, which historically has been the source of the region’s finest wines. The Belz vineyard, one of the finest in the village of Wachenheim, is the only site in the area with a significant amount of chalk (shell limestone) in the soil. It produces distinctive wines with a rounded structure and an engaging grapefruit note in the aroma.
Wachenheimer Belz Riesling is delicate and stony, with a mid-palate warmth that is just starting to emerge. This is a wine that needs several years in to bottle to develop its full potential, and whilst drinking superbly now it has great aging potential.
