Weingut Rudolf May en primeur

Back to producer list Grower profile 2017 was full of challenges: a dry start to the year was followed by heavy rain in July, which led to disease pressure, and was not helped by the ubiquitous April frosts. Lots of hard work saw off the problems, and the resulting vintage has great potential.

2018 Silvaner Retzstadt [06 19] (MAYR10218A)
Made from young vines from great sites, this is forward and smooth, with bright yellow fruit softened by a touch of honey and defined by salty mineral flavours on the finish.

2018 Silvaner Retzstadter Langenberg (MAYR30218A)
This 1er cru, or Erste Lage is made from 40-year-old vines in the heart of the vineyard, growing on very poor limestone soils that give only very small berries. The ripeness of the vintage is apparent in the rich yellow fruit, but the fine chalky minerality and vibrant freshness provide a more than adequate counterpoint. It is pleasingly long.

2018 Silvaner Der Schäfer Retzstadter Langenberg [14 19] (MAYR32218A)
From a subplot of the Langenberg vineyard facing south-east and planted in 1969, with naturally low yields and vinified in a new 1200-litre cask. I have never been a fan of new wood in aromatic white wines, but this wine forced me to think again. It is beautifully judged: the oak adds breadth and hints of smoke and spice to the pure fine yellow fruit, and it has density, freshness and length.
