The upper section comprises mainly of small terraces, while the lower section stretches out in somewhat flatter slopes. The low-lying areas have highly calcareous chernozem soils with fragments of crystalline rocks, derived from the underlying loess which in turn overlays gravel beds. The upper part of the slope consist predominantly of gneiss with amphibolite lenses and some granite. The topsoil is calcareous brown earth with varying proportions of coarse material. This vineyard tends to yield a more feminine style of Riesling.
