Like their Riesling, with steely determination and the ability to take on what appears to be insurmountable odds the Germans excel in winemaking in their less than hospitable wine environment. The meandering Rhine River opens the steep curve hugging terrain with carpet like vineyards, hosting the elements to produce world class wines.
Indubitably, the Teutonic, never yield character has paid dividends as Germany can lay claim to be a world leader in many different wine styles. The German Pinot Noir and Dornfelder grape varietals comfortably occupy a coveted space in the palate space of many wine experts. Across the German landscape we see the well- manicured vines, affectionately tended to with precision, systematically and methodically loved in true German fashion.
In the East we experience a local variety called Sylvaner, a white grape with subtlies of flavours rarely tasted by the average wine drinker, but highly treasured by experts. Learn and absorb and enjoy.
Know the different styles, quality of wines in this, one of the most northerly wine producing countries. While German cars are highly considered to be pieces of fine engineering masterpieces, their wines are no less impressive and certainly well deserving. Proust!
