GERMANY

The unique climatic and geological framework of Germany is marked out by 13 different wine regions. Still best known for producing some of the finest Rieslings in the world from the steep slate slopes around the banks of the Mosel and Rhine rivers, Germany also produces some very interesting reds, as well as some of the finest sweet wines in the world.

TASTING NOTES

Mango, glazed pineapple, root beer and caramel inform a headily ripe and exotic nose – tinged with musk, sweat, and smoke – and also an almost syrupy-sweet and viscous palate. Piquant hints of orange rind and a bit of fresh orange juiciness are outgunned in the finish by the onslaught of caramelized tropical fruit concentrate.

German Wine

Wines From Germany

Germany is rightly famous for its high-acidity, fruit-inflected white wines, like the 2011 Riesling Halbtrocken Muschelkalk from Theodorus in Pfalz. German wine has international prestige, with the Mosel valley wines like the 2014 Riesling Kinheimer Hubertuslay Spatlese from Weingut Rudolf Trossen. The unique German soils and climate mean there’s a huge variety of German wine types, and Armit Wines is proud to be the exclusive UK importer of many German wines.

German Wine Regions

Germany’s Pfalz region, near the Haardt mountains, is responsible for some of the country’s most characterful and unusual wines, including the 2011 Riesling Halbtrocken Muschelkalk, a fruity, aromatic German Riesling wine from the Theodorus vineyard. Meanwhile the Nahe region’s volcanic soils mean many different grapes are grown side by side. It’s the source of the classic late-harvest German white wine Niederhauser Hermannshöhle Spätlese from Herman Donnhoff, with its full, rich fruity nose and exuberant elegance on the palate. Perhaps less celebrated than other European wine-producing countries, Germany is none the less rewarding to the dedicated explorer.
