“A roller coaster ride” was how the year´s progression was described and steady nerves were required. The weather gods showed themselves to be more kind during the extremely early harvest following heavy rains. The mild weather with its cold nights helped many grapes evolve to a good level of ripeness and plenty of aromas. The young wines in Rheinhessen are proving to be very fruit-driven with a well-balanced, refreshing acidity. Especially the late-ripening varieties such as Riesling benefitted from this challenging vintage.
