This 120-page strong Issue includes Part III of our extensive 2016 Vintage Report with 500 wines tasted from the Mosel and the whole of Germany.
While the highly acclaimed 2015 hit the market in Spring 2016, 2016 faced a spring from hell. However, the vintage turned miraculously for the better, literally snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. The result is a classic even if slightly ripe vintage with great early charm ... and, hidden amongst its midst, some of the most stunning pieces of Mosel classicism we have tasted in 10 years of Mosel Fine Wines.
Part III of the Vintage Report includes 15 detailed Estate Reviews (with over 220 wines sampled). It also provides detailed tasting notes for another 160 recommended wines from a further 35 Estates, including from some new names we bet you have never heard off as well as most high-end dry Riesling (GG & equivalent).
The annual Trier Auctions saw the sale of some of the finest 2016 Mosel Riesling. We look back at the two events which yielded record high prices as well as some stunning bargains, and complement this with some additional tasting notes.
2016 proved a superb classic vintage full of charm, elegance and age-worthiness for dry German Riesling. We highlight over 90 recommended dry Riesling from outside of the Mosel as well as 80 stunning dry Riesling highlights from the Mosel.
We provide full tasting notes of the Riesling wines on offer (20 wines) from some of the finest producers in Germany, including some rare dry wines as well as high-end fruity and dessert wines.
