2016 Wirsching "Estate" Silvaner Trocken Franken

SKU #1347793 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 This dry light-footed Silvaner offers tangy yellow-apple and lemon flavors elevated by whiffs of blossom, honeycomb and crushed mineral. It's a sprightly lean wine with a crisp finish. Drink now through 2021. (AI)  (6/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 Proper spring wine – smells of early, cool mornings and elderflower cordial, and then, if you give it a chance to open in the glass, a little bit of nuttiness – that green creamy cobnut flavour that goes so beautifully with a bowl of marcona almonds. Creamy green nuttiness on the palate as well – like the best ripe avocado mashed on malted whole-grain toast with a squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of olive oil. Now you know what to eat with this wine. #hipsterbreakfastwine. (TC) 16/20  (3/2018)

Wine Spectator

 Well-spiced, with a concise palate expressing notes of red apple, gooseberry and ripe lime. Pure and focused, offering sleek mineral accents and a firm acidic backbone that drives this to a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020. (AZ)  (2/2018)

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.
