Vintage Report
Total harvest figures of two million hectolitres in Germany s largest wine region are significantly lower, approx. 20 per cent less than the previous year and the long- term average. This was caused by frosts in April and hail storms especially in the Alzey-Worms district later in the season. 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, refresrefreshing acidity. Especially the late-ripening varieties such as Riesling benefitted from this challenging vintage.

"One of my favorites"

Mary Ann

"Slightly more acidic than usual and the ten percent alcohol level is higher, too ... perhaps the results of bad weather during the growing season. On the whole, still a very nice wine and had I tasted it before buying I still would have bought it. I've been buying Valkenberg for years and never had one I didn't like."
