Roundup: Germany 2015 En Primeur
22 September 2016

Never have we seen such a buzz around a German en primeur campaign. The hotly anticipated 2015 Rieslings and 2014 Spatburgunders drew record numbers to our annual tasting. It’s wonderful to see demand continue to go from strength to strength, and so rewarding to meet new customers eager to understand the delights of German wine. Our tasting showed that when it comes to elegance, intensity and site-driven transparency, top estate-bottled Riesling competes at an elite level. Combined with a faithfulness to tradition; buoyant fruity flavours and spicy, mineral-inflected textures, Riesling really has no equal. On the night, the wines of Emrich-Schonleber were hugely successful; particularly the sophisticated, dazzlingly clear dry wines Fruhtau and Halgans - mini-GGs in every sense. The legendary wines of Maximin Grunhaus were of course a hit, as the bright and playful intensity of the Bruderberg Kabinett made many friends. Schloss Lieser continue to produce extraordinary wines at very reasonable prices – the Lieser Niederberg Helden Spatlese, from the home vineyard, offers succulent golden fruit flavours with a real lightness of touch. At Auslese level, a particularly strong category this year, there were many contenders, but we have an exciting Bernkasteler Lay Auslese Goldcap to offer from JJ Prum. This is the first time a Goldcap has been produced from this vineyard, and it simply oozes cool, concentrated, clear fruit droplets.    Read More
