92pts - Wine Enthusiast/Aug 18
Das 1200 gegründete Gut wird heute in der 32. Generation von Prinz Felix zu Salm-Salm verwaltet. Es ist das älteste familiengeführte Weingut Deutschlands und bewirtschaftet Lagen, sowohl an der Nahe als auch in Rheinhessen.
The 2016 harvest brought great qualities into our cellar, despite a very challenging year, with extreme weather influences. Until July the average rainfall of a whole year had already been reached. Our good and quick-witted vineyard team did great work to preserve the quality and quantity fighting diseases (Peronospera). Sadly there was nothing we could do about the frost at the end of April which led to a very low yield for our Nahe wines (1.200 Liters per acre). Beginning in August the summer really kicked in. Little rainfall and high temperatures accompanied the weeks until the beginning of harvest on 26nd September. The weather influences just before and during the harvest have become more important than ever. The good conditions durinig this year’s harvest enabled us to pick grapes at a great ripeness level with super healthy grapes.
