Water storage capacity/Usable field capacity: about 180 litres/m²
Effects of soil type on wine
The limestone clay creates more concentrated, full-bodied exotic fruit aromas. Above all, the lime content brings with it a noticable feeling of higher minerality. Along with it, the finesse and fine fruit aroma also increases. The acidity structure of wine grown in the calcereous marl clay soil presents with soft and creamy notes.

Effects of soil type on wine
Weathered volcanic soils have a powerful effect on wine. The elements of minerality and salinity distinguish the wine by giving it a full-bodied taste and distinct aroma. These soils are excellent for masculine wine, such as Traminer, Grauburgunder and red wine varieties. The sites also support additional characteristics of these varieties of wine.
