Terroir of Birkweiler from the Palatinate
The terroir is unique and rare, since it contains many different types of soil such as red sandstone, shell limestone, Rotliegendes. And more importantly, their soil varieties derive from the transition area between the Upper Rhine and the Palatinate Forest. The special fractured clod at the edge of the tectonics plates provide exciting soil conditions, which can lead to a strong expression in the wine .
The barren soil forces the vines to search for nutrients in the ground through their roots . This tough survival behavior promotes minerality in the grapes and thus denisty in the wine.
