Germany 2016

Vintage Report Germany 2016

Following a great vintage is never easy. The abundance of quality found in 2015, from lowly estate wines to top Grosses Gewächs, is incredibly rare. Unsurprisingly it is impossible to state that 2016 can compete in the sheer breadth of its brilliance. And yet, if we narrow our field of vision, there are undoubtedly plenty of individual wines in 2016 which will happily stand shoulder to shoulder with their 2015 counterparts – and in a refreshingly different style.

Where 2015 gave us wines with huge reserves of fruit and concentrated, intense characters, 2016 is more subtle and charming, with cool fruit flavours, complex minerality and often a touch of herbal freshness. There is an exemplary purity and old fashioned refinement to the best of these 2016s which makes them an absolute delight to taste. As one grower noted, “they are more Art House than Blockbuster”. Acidities are ripe, integrated and often play in the background, making way for clearly presented, precise Riesling flavours to take centre stage. They are going to be tremendously drinkable.

Germany 2016 Producers

Since the 1997 vintage we have seen a complete revival of Germany’s fortunes as a producer of world-class wine.  Led by the aristocratic Riesling variety and a growing band of first class producers, the country finally seems to be enjoying the recognition it truly deserves. As well as the shining star that is Riesling, growers like August Kesseler in the Rheingau, whose steep, slate Assmannshauser Hollenberg vineyard is said to have been planted over a thousand year ago, are showing the world just how exciting German Pinot Noir can be.

Appellations of Germany

With a whole host of notable appellations – Mosel, Nahe, Pfalz, Rheinhessen – we are truly spoilt by Germany. The land produces wines of superb intensity, with flavours ranging from the cacophonously spicy to taut, toned steely minerality – the fruits of the country are versatile and enthralling.

Grape Types of Germany

Home to Burgundy-beating Pinot Noir (known here as Spatburger) and one of the all-time classic white wine varietals – Riesling - Germany is a region with much to offer. Traditionally, the best wines have come from the sweeter Kabinett, Spatlese or super-rich late-harvest categories but many growers are these days proving that the driest of the dry “Trocken” wines are also to be equally coveted.
