It is the white Riesling grape that rules in Germany. It is the grape of the Rhine and Mosel valleys, producing wines that are among the most exciting in the world. This excitement has been enhanced by the run of fine vintages enjoyed in Germany over the past decade, with 2009 being one of the very best.
Lower yields in the vineyard, allied to good vintages, has resulted in wines that are precise yet concentrated, racey yet ripe. Despite the fact that the wines have never been better, their prices are still quite reasonable, as demand, while growing, remains below what it should be for wines of this quality.
