Wine Review Report:

wein.plus rating: excellent (91 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 21 May, 2020
Editor note: Vegetable to herbaceous and slightly floral citrus stone fruit scent with a touch of candy and smoky mineral tones. Ripe, juicy, somewhat warm and melt-in-the-mouth, partly candied fruit, very fine acidity, again herbaceous-vegetable aromas, lasting, certain depth, intense minerality, certain spiciness, very good, firm, juicy finish with a touch. In excellent condition, much better than expected - and still a long way from the end

These three rivers gave the old name Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, which was valid until 2007. The oldest vineyards in Germany are located on the upper...

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...
