wein.plus rating: good (83 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 19 June, 2011
Editor note: Translate to English Gereifter, nussiger und deutlich laktischer Duft mit Noten von getrocknetem Kernobst und etwas Melone mit kräuterigen und leicht wachsigen Noten. Auch im Mund deutlich gereift, laktisch und süßlich-schmelzig, nussige und karamellige Töne, feine Säure, vegetabile Noten, viel Kraft und Alkohol, aber recht verschwommene Konturen, gewisse Nachhaltigkeit, ordentlicher bis guter, auffällig süßlicher Abgang. Inzwischen über seiner besten Zeit.

Editor note: Translate to English Etwas pflanzlicher Duft nach Kernobst, Honigmelone und kandierten Zitrusfrüchten mit mineralischen Spuren. Im Mund weich, schmelzig und eher ruhig, melonig-nussige Frucht, recht fest gewirkt, feine Säure, leichter Holzton am Gaumen, noch eine Spur sandiger Gerbstoff im Hintergrund, auch wieder mineralische Anklänge, hat trotz der schmelzigen und ruhigen Art merklichen Biss, gute Nachhaltigkeit, wieder nussiger und süßlich-holziger Abgang.

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. 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 Rhône valley to the...
