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 September rains came just in time and had a positive effect on quality and quantity. However, there are very different yields for the grape varieties within the region because it only rained locally in the summer. The weather “played into the hands” of the red wine varieties, which grow on about 30 percent of the cultivation area in Rheinhessen; in terms of color intensity and tannin structure, they need not fear comparison with international varieties. Thanks to excellent ripeness, the winegrowers "got the style they wanted for their range" when they decided on the time of harvest. The rain also slowed down the increase in must weights.
