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.

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.
