Last reviewed: 27 July, 2005
Editor note: Translate to English Sehr klarer, typischer, nussiger Duft nach reifen Äpfeln und etwas Honigmelone mit verhaltener Holzwürze. Ungeheuer dicht und saftig im Mund, nicht ganz trocken, nussige Würze und moderates Holz, sehr feine Säure, mineralisch im Hintergrund, jede Menge Fett, der Alkohol sehr gut integriert, etwas reifer Gerbstoff, gute Struktur und Tiefe, wirkt jung, sehr harmonisch, langer Abgang.

Hervorragende Arbeit.

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.
