A tiny crop of scintillating brilliance
2017 in Germany is all about beautifully balanced, ripe-tasting wines. The phrase ‘small but perfectly formed’ could have been coined for this vintage: the tiny yields have concentrated and intensified the flavours beautifully.
Quality is excellent, but the growers didn’t have it easy. Shortly after the growing season had burst into life, a devastating frost hit. Everybody knew it was coming, heaters were put into place and fingers were crossed; but the frost was indiscriminate, even whitening the hillsides, with devastating consequences for young shoots.
Yet what is left has been made into wines of scintilating brilliance. Saar, Ruwer and the Pfalz all excelled and all styles of white wine were possible, from dry to sweet.
