Wine Review Report:

wein.plus rating: excellent (92 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 29 December, 2020
Editor note: Developed, slightly bacony and dried-vegetable nose of predominantly red berries with earthy, mushroomy and slightly yellow-spicy aromas. Dense and juicy in the mouth, ripe rather bright fruit with noticeable acid bite, some citrus zest and again yellow spice, persistent and quite taut on the palate, still has freshness, tremendous salty minerality, delicate plummy tones, good depth, very good to long somewhat ethereal and yellow.spicy finish with fine juice. At least from this bottle not quite at the level of its youth, but still very, very good

Editor note: Translate to English Sehr straffer, konzentrierter und doch ungeheuer feiner, herber, komplexer Duft nach kleinen roten und auch schwarzen Beeren mit deutlicher Mineralik, zart tabakigen und getrocknet-floralen Tönen sowie moderater Holzwürze. Auch im Mund ziemlich fest gewirkt und gleichzeitig hochfein, kühle, geschliffene, feinsaftige Frucht, zurückhaltendes Holz, herbe getrocknet-pflanzliche Töne und wieder sehr viel Mineralik, Griff und feiner Säurebiss am Gaumen, nachhaltig, ausgezeichnete Tiefe, wirkt aber noch kaum entwickelt, ziemlich klassischer burgundischer Stil, perfekte Kombination von Kraft und Finesse, kernig und vielschichtig, langer Nachhall mit enormem Zug. Muss unbedingt reifen.

The German winegrowing region of Franconia used to be divided into the three areas of Maindreieck, Mainviereck and Steigerwald with 23 major sites and 216 individual sites. In November 2011, the members of the Franconian Winegrowers' Association adopted a new regulation. The three old areas will be replaced by 12 much smaller ones. These will also replace the 23 large sites in the medium to long term. The old areas once played a role in the predominant marketing of Franconian table wine, which they had lost for some time. Before this conversion, the following description applied to the Mainviereck area:

Main - Flussverlauf mit Maindreieck und Mainviereck

The very small Mainviereck area is...

The cultivation area is located on the northern edge of the state of Bavaria in Germany and is crossed by the Main River in a large W shape. 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...
