2019 Silvaner [02 20] (MAYR06219A)
Young vines from great sites with shell limestone soils give a bright, lemony wine with an appealing freshness, and there is pronounced salty stony minerality that builds towards the finish. Fantastic quality at this level.

2017 Silvaner Retzstadt [08 18] (MAYR20217A)
This village, or Ortswein, comes in the traditional Franconian bottle, the Bocksbeutel, which may bring back memories of a dubious Portuguese product. don't be put off. 30-year-old vines on fossil-rich limestone soils (including the GG Himmelspfad) give an astonishingly fine, vibrant wine with yellow fruit flavours, including passion fruit, and a fresh salty finish.

2019 Silvaner Retzstadter Langenberg 'Der Schäfer' [10 20] (MAYR32219A)
From a subplot of the Langenberg vineyard facing south-east and planted in 1969, with naturally low yields. It was destined for a brand new 2400-litre cask of local oak, but there was not enough must to fill it, so a two-year-old smaller cask was used, and the wine is less marked by new oak as a consequence. It is rich and intense, but kept bright by vibrant ripe acidity and a very fine dark saline minerality. Quite gorgeous.

2018 Himmelspfad Silvaner GG [15 19] (MAYR40218A)
From the warmest part of the Langenberg vineyard, which is composed primarily of fossil-rich fine limestone. The soil is poor, and the vines are the estate's oldest, at fifty-five, which keeps yields correspondingly low. The only hint that it was a warm year is the smooth yellow fruit, the rest is pure terroir: this is an effortlessly elegant, lean, pure and floral wine, with a fine density. To balance the ripeness, there is a pronounced slightly bitter stoniness that builds to a crescendo on the finish, leaving a pleasant sensation of heat behind it.

2017 Himmelspfad Silvaner GG [18 18] (MAYR40217A)
From the warmest part of the Langenberg vineyard, which is composed primarily of fossil-rich fine limestone. The soil is poor, and the vines are the estate's oldest, at fifty-five, which keeps yields correspondingly low. It is effortless, a dense, rich wine, packed with smooth rounded fruit, a freshening lemon/grapefruit edge and an effortless fine minerality on the finish.

2018 Rothlauf Silvaner GG [16 19] (MAYR42218A)
From the best parcel of a cooler vineyard in neighbouring Thüngersheim, the Johannisberg, which features the same fossil-rich limestone, but here mixed with multicoloured sandstone. The wine is aged in equal parts in steel, concrete egg and wood, and shows how this often under-rated varietal can be an excellent foil for terroir. It is smooth and ripe, with focussed yellow fruit, a hint of lychee, a touch of oak and a beautifully detailed stony mineral element that lasts to the very long juicy finish.

2017 Rothlauf Silvaner GG [19 18] (MAYR42217A)
From the best parcel of a cooler vineyard in neighbouring Thngersheim, the Johannisberg, which features the same fossil-rich limestone, but here mixed with multicoloured sandstone. The wine is aged in equal parts in steel, concrete egg and wood, and shows how this often under-rated varietal can be an excellent foil for terroir. It is pure, focussed and smooth, with taut citrus and lychee notes, plus a delicate minerality that emerges gradually from under the vibrant fruit and persists through the long juicy finish.
