This 125-page strong Issue includes Part II of our extensive 2021 Vintage Report, a full report to the upcoming Auctions, and Part I of our 2021 dry German Riesling Report. Here is what is in store.
The 2021 proved marked by rain and cool weather and yet delivered some absolute stunner cut along the mold of past glories.
We review the growing conditions, describe the wine styles, and share our buying guide!
Part I of the Vintage Report includes 8 detailed Estate Reviews (with 130 wines sampled). It also provides detailed tasting notes for another 95 wines from a further 22 Estates. The report also includes recent releases from past vintages (2020, 2019, and 2018).
On top of classics from great established Estates, we also unearthed some beauties from upcoming and still largely unknown new growers.
The 2022 Auctions (VDP Mosel, Bernkasteler Ring, and VDP Nahe-Ahr-Pfalz-Rheinhessen) will take place in a few days, on September 16-17-18. They 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.
The Issue also includes Part I of our 2021 dry German Riesling report with 170 wines tasted, many of which are GGs from leading Estates (these wines have just been released). The report also includes other dry Riesling highlights from the Mosel.
