Editor note: Translate to English Fester, etwas kräuterig-vegetabiler, deutlich mineralischer Duft mit kühlen Steinobst- und Zitrusaromen sowie floralen Spuren und viel Kandis. Sehr reife, süßlich-schmelzige und saftige Frucht, feine vegetabile und kräuterige Aromen, fester Bau, lebendige Säure, etwas Gerbstoff, einen Hauch roter Beeren im Hintergrund, gewisse Wärme, nachhaltig am Gaumen, deutliche Mineralik, viel Griff, gute Tiefe, noch nicht ausentwickelt, feiner Biss, komplex, süßlicher Schmelz auch im sehr guten Abgang. Wirkte in seiner Jugend fast etwas zu weich, gewinnt aber an Griff und wird sich wesentlich länger und besser entwickeln können als zunächst vermutet.

The vineyards cover 26,758 hectares, making it the largest German wine-growing region in terms of area. The vineyards are located on the left bank of the Rhine knee between Bingen, Mainz and Worms in the form of a huge triangle. Many finds attest to ancient viticulture, such as a Roman water pipe in Ingelheim. Nierstein is home to Germany's oldest vineyard, the...

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...
