This 115-page strong Issue includes Part III of our 2020 Vintage Report, our annual dry German Riesling report, and a guide to the 2021 Auctions. Here is what is in store.
The 2020 growing season was hot and dry and the harvest season mostly cloudy and rainy: The result is a unique vintage with incredible lightness, filigreed precision, subtlety, and a dash of ripeness.
We review the growing conditions, describe the wine styles, and share our buying guide!
Part III of the Vintage Report includes 9 detailed Estate Reviews (with 130 wines sampled). It also provides detailed tasting notes for another 90 wines from a further 10 Estates, including from a few new exciting names we bet you have never heard off.
2020 proved a contrasted vintage with some stunners at the top but caution is needed. We highlight over 200 recommended wines from leading German growers.
The 2021 Auctions (Bernkasteler Ring, VDP Mosel, and VDP Nahe-Ahr-Rheinhessen-Pfalz) will take place later in a few days, on November 11-12-13 and offer wine lovers the possibility to acquire some of the finest casks of German Riesling. We provide some background on the events as well as detailed tasting notes for the wines on offer at all three events ahead of the events.
