The Ried Lamer at one of the highest points of the Ruster Hügelland at 200 meters above sea level. As a high plateau, it has a slope of only 1%, and the orientation to the south-east is of minor importance here. Due to the exposed location, the wind blows much more strongly than in lower elevations.
As a result, the grapes are well ventilated and the risk of rot is very low. The adjacent forest also ensures that the temperatures cool down at night. The cooler climate is therefore ideal for white wines rich in finesse, which at the same time benefit from all-day sunlight.
The soil consists of weathered mica schist and is largely free of lime. The topsoil consists of a thin layer of clay, which gives the vineyard its name. This special soil composition gives the wine a lot of freshness and a subtle, smoky minerality.
