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.

2017 HIMMELSPFAD SILVANER GG [18 18] Weingut Rudolf May (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.

2017 SILVANER [23 18] (MAYR10217A)
Made from young vines from great sites, this is a forward charmer with yellow fruit, some salty mineral flavours and a fresh finish.

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.

2017 SILVANER Retzstadter Langenberg [13 18] (MAYR30217A)
This 1er cru, or Erste Lage is made from 40-year-old vines in the heart of the vineyard, growing on very poor soils. It is very lean and fine, with melting mineral flavours and a hint of smooth tropical fruit.

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.
