Wine-growing area/ single vineyard:

The Single Vineyard Jägerberg is located within the cadastral district Kranach, which belongs to the village of Gamlitz.

Climate:

On Jägerberg the temperature differences between day and night are smaller - this fact provides ideal conditions for Burgundy varieties. These expressive wines reflect a complex aroma spectrum with an enormous tension.

Soil:

The vineyards of Jägerberg are located in the tertiary sedimentary region of the “Gamlitz Schlier”, also called
“Older Schlier”. (“Schlier” is a fine-sandy marl clay, in this case with deposits of sandy quartz). The existence of many fossils is a typical character for such chalky, marine sediments. The soil type is a chalky Regosol of loamy-sandy tertiary material.
The water retention capacity is high, the water permeability is moderate.
