The renowned grand cru Moarfeitl occupies a south-southwest-facing plateau situated above the Augenweide vineyard at 340 meters altitude. Neumeister planted two hectares of vines here in 1990, and Moarfeitl’s soils of sand, loam, and gravel are intermixed with volcanic elements, lending the Sauvignon Blanc from this site a distinctively assertive and profound mineral character. In accordance with the stringent requirements for GSTK (“Grosse STK Ried”) status, this spends 18 months in used oak casks between five and 25 hectoliters in capacity; like all of Neumeister’s wines, it undergoes a pre-fermentation maceration on its skins for several days before fermentation commences spontaneously.
