For over 230 years P.J. Valckenberg has discovered extraordinary German Estates and act as an ambassador of their wines. The Valckenberg Varietals represent authentic and typical german wines.
The late summer heat encouraged early ripening in the Pinot varieties, and necessitated a fast harvest in some cases. The Riesling harvest required nothing less than strong nerves. Rain in early autumn delayed ripening and heightened the risk of Botrytis. On the whole, the vintage persevered through the capricious weather conditions, delivering promising wines with the right balance of outstanding fruit, moderate acidity, and somewhat lower alcohol volumes.
