General Information

As the name suggests, the so-called Rotliegend (“red-liner”), a red-colored volcanic rock, called rhyolite tuff, provides deep and delicately spicy Rieslings. The site name is based on the popular, up until the 17th century, method of mixing wine with herbs, which were specifically planted for this purpose in a Würzgarten (“spice garden”). The relatively dark surface soil warms up quickly and is sufficiently aerated thanks to its loose structure. The clayey loam soil underneath is able to retain moisture for quite a long time. Even if the main root is not too deep into the ground, the vine can use the stored moisture deeper down as a water reservoir. The nutrient supply is for a slightly acidic, lime-free, and iron-rich soil sufficient.

In certain cases, ZYN is unable to guarantee vintages due to the Alberta Government distribution system. ZYN will do its best to ensure that the vintages on its website are updated and accurate. If ZYN cannot fulfill your order with the requested vintage, you will be notified accordingly and you may choose to either accept the available vintage or cancel your order.
