Best to drink: Bis 2014+. What our ratings mean
Editor note: Translate to English Holzwürziger und vegetabil-kräuteriger Duft nach Honigmelone, und kandierter Litschi mit zarten Karamelltönen und floralen Anklängen. Klare, cremige, nicht zu süße Frucht mit präsenter, aber integrierter Holzwürze, wieder auch pflanzliche, florale und kräuterige Töne, feine, harmonische Säure, gewisse Nachhaltigkeit am Gaumen, leichtes Traminerbitter, guter Abgang. Deutlich harmonischer und lebendiger als die erste Probe.

Editor note: Translate to English Deutlich holzwürziger Duft nach Honigmelone und etwas Litschi mit floralen Beinoten. Weich und süßlich im Mund, deutliche Holznoten, feine, moderate Säure, relativ viel Schmelz, rauchig-röstige Töne am Gaumen, nicht viel Tiefe, sorgfältig gemacht und typisch, aber durch das Holz fast ein wenig zu ruhig, es fehlt ein wenig Leben, guter Abgang.

The wine-growing region is located in Hesse in Germany between the rivers Neckar, Rhine and Main in the protection of the Odenwald on the western slope of the Odenwald. The vineyards cover 467 hectares of vines along the Rhine. The Romans already cultivated vines here and laid out the "Via strata montana" (mountain road). The first documented reference was made in 755 regarding the donation of a vineyard in Heppenheim

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