Kreuzberg / Leutschach

SIGNUM BLANC grows on tourmaline-rich rocky soil, a unique terroir on the Kreuzberg in southern Styria.

There, the loose metamorphic rock in which the vines are rooted deep in the rock and penetrate into the finest cracks contains black tourmaline, as confirmed by a soil analysis in 2019. Geologically speaking, tourmaline “bites out” at the SIGNUM BLANC vines on Kreuzberg: it emerges and simultaneously permeates the deep layers of rock.

This precious stone, which has been resting in the soil of the Kreuzberg for millions of years under the vines, is a true “treasure”. As a gemstone, black tourmaline is mysterious and magically beautiful, but it is also one thing: energetically valuable.

The power, energy and minerality of the black gemstone is absorbed by the fine deep roots of the vines, which wander persistently through the rocky, humus-poor soil in search of nutrients and minerals. It is precisely this power, energy and minerality that passes through the roots into the hand-picked grapes and is later intensified by the wine’s long aging in the cellar.

The aromas are more condensed, more concentrated, this results in a very characterful wine. – “Noble stone, noble wine!”

SIGNUM BLANC has “Vinergie”.

And you can feel it, sip for sip.
