Wine Review Report:

wein.plus rating: very good (85 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 16 October, 2016
Editor note: Translate to English Zurückhaltende, deutlich vegetabile Nase mit gelbfruchtigen Spuren. Eher weiche Frucht, vegetabile Aromen, sehr feine Säure, leicht kräuterig, geradlinig, etwas Schmelz, gewisse Nachhaltigkeit und Substanz, nussige Spuren, ordentlicher bis guter Abgang. Schmeckt besser und ist noch lebendiger, als die sehr reduzierte Nase zunächst befürchten lässt.

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...
