Wine Review Report:

wein.plus rating: very good (86 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 30 November, 2020
Editor note: Cool, somewhat floral and herbal nose of more red than black berries with a touch of root vegetables and herbs. Tart, cool fruit, fine tannin, vegetable aromas again on the palate, a little nutty, a hint of dark chocolate in the background, some persistence, smoky nuances, somewhat tart and spicy, good to very good finish. Has gained weight

A special feature is that the Bavarian vineyards on Lake Constance around Lindau belong to the Württemberg growing region. The vineyards cover 6,130 hectares of vineyard area, most of which extend between Aschaffenburg and Schweinfurt. All vineyards are planted on south-facing valley slopes on the banks of the Main or in side valleys of its tributaries. It is an ancient wine-growing region, as evidenced by a deed of donation from the year 777 to the monastery of Fulda, to which the royal estate...

Germany, or rather the area that belongs to it today, has a wine culture that is over two thousand years old. But imported wine was already being drunk before that, as evidenced by a Greek wine bottle made of clay dating from around 400 BC found in a Celtic tomb. The oldest vineyards were located on the banks of the Rhine, Neckar and Moselle. These rivers with their elongated valleys, as well as their tributaries, are still the classic growing areas today. Viticulture was established by the colonization of the Greeks in Gaul and then brought to perfection by the Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from...
