2015 Wirsching "Estate" Silvaner Trocken Franken

SKU #1274182

The Wirsching family has been producing wine in this region since 1630. Home to Wirsching is the village of Iphofen, one of the most famous in Franconia and one which produces wines of unsurpassed regional quality from the steeply sloping vineyards. Today, Dr. Heinrich Wirsching serves as owner/proprietor of the estate and carries his family winemaking tradition of nearly 400 years. While the noble yet under-appreciated Silvaner is the estate's traditional focus, Wirsching also produces fine examples of Riesling and Scheurebe. The wines have a fine mineral character, along with layers of fruit, spice, and uncommon depth.

- 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.
