In one of Franken’s great wine producing villages, Escherndorf, award-winning winemaker Horst Sauer crafts wines of purity and intensity of flavour. These mainly dry or ‘trocken’ wines are excellent with asian/oriental food and fish. Horst also makes some sublime late harvest wine that mix richness, purity and mouth-watering acidity. Riesling, Silvaner, Rivaner and Pinot Noir are the principal grape varieties grown on the estate. The Silvaner, a grape that is rarely afforded as much respect anywhere else, flourishes on the Lump Vineyard's limestone soils producing energetic concentrated wines, while the Riesling shows a sturdier more structured side to its character than in other parts of germany. For most of his range Horst employs the traditional Franken bottle, the short wide ‘Bocksbeutel’, whilst the more international Bordeaux style bottles are used for the modern stylish, Frank and Fresh wines.
