wein.plus rating: very good (86 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 28 October, 2014
Editor note: Translate to English Recht herber, deutlich grün-vegetabiler Duft mit verhaltenen gelbfruchtigen Aromen sowie nussigen und erdig-vegetabilen Anklängen. Kräftig und würzig im Mund, reife Frucht mit etwas Kandis und merklichem Holz, leicht sandiger Gerbstoff, lebendige Säure, viel süßlicher Schmelz am Gaumen, nachhaltig, etwas alkoholwarm, herbe mineralische und getrocknet-pflanzliche Töne im Hintergrund, hat Griff, ein Hauch Tabak im Hintergrund, guter bis sehr guter, ganz leicht rauer und alkoholwarmer Abgang.

Two thirds of the vineyards are steep slopes or hillside sites. Heilbronn is the wine capital...

Germany, or rather the area that is now part of it, has a wine culture that is over two thousand years old.

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.
