Weingut Horst Sauer is named after its owner. Both Horst and his daughter Sandra (who joined the winery in 2004) are winemakers at their 37 hectare estate in Franken - situated near Wurzburg (between Frankfurt and Nuremberg). Eight different grape varieties are planted, including Riesling, Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau. Their vineyards are focused around the 'Erste Lagen' (prime) sites of Escherndorfer Lump and Escherndorfer Fürstenberg. Escherndorfer Lump is a steep south-facing slope protected from cold north-eastern winds, with a top layer of limestone-rich soil.
Quite simply one of the best dessert wines available from the IWSC sweet winemaker of the year 2019 and German winemaker of the year 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018. Made from partially frozen grapes, fermented at extremely low temperatures. Intense, pure botrytis notes and a unique oily texture together with racy acidity make for an unforgettable sweet wine experience.
