2011 Dr. Heyden Silvaner Trocken (Dry) Alte Reben

SKU #1135872 Wine Enthusiast

 *Best Buy* This wine is fascinating on the nose with notes of ripe tropical fruit and heather mixed with dark, earthy scents of wax and lanolin. Dry in style with a rich, weighty mouthfeel, it finishes mysteriously with a smoky, floral flair.  (9/2013)

K&L Notes

Made from 50 year old vines, this is an astonishing introduction to Silvaner. Wonderfully dry and nervey, the wine shows great peach and nectarine fruit qualitites with a bright mineral finish.

Germany

- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
