Editor note: Somewhat floral, herbal, slightly almondy and hinted at peppery scent of yellow fruits with a hint of lychee and roses. Straightforward, still youthful fruit with a delicately sweet melt, a hint of red berries and some wax, lively acidity, a little drying tannin, light varietal bitterness, a hint of chalk and apple-like hints on the good to very good finish.
Besides Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße one of the two areas of the German wine region Pfalz; see there.

The wine-growing region is located in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany. The vineyards cover 23,554 hectares, making it the second largest German wine-growing region after Rheinhessen. Until 1995 it was called Rheinpfalz, the current name (lat.

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 RhôneRhône...

The white grape variety is by far the most common variety of Traminer (see detailed information on the Traminer family there), which is referred to in many sources as Savagnin Blanc (or Savagnin for short). The numerous synonyms are partly also used for other varieties such as Savagnin Rose and for Traminer in general. Therefore, one cannot infer the "correct" variety without any doubt from the name/synonym. The most important ones grouped alphabetically by country are Savagnin Rose Aromatique (Australia); Mala Dinka (Bulgaria); Clevner, Klevner, Rother Muskattraminer, Roter Traminer, Traminer Rot...
