The soils here are lighter than in the plains and, thus, heat up more quickly. These are perfect conditions for Riesling, who loves this light, warm soil on which he can ripen ideally. In autumn, he benefits from the proximity to the forest which provides a cool, constant climate. This leads to a good balance between acidity and sweetness.
