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.

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.

2019 Silvaner Retzstadt [04 20] (MAYR10219A)
Made from vines between 25 and 40 years old, this village is rounded and fine, with well delineated pear and citrus fruit, and a pure lean saltiness on the long finish. It is bottled in the traditional Franconian Bocksbeutel. (For those of you who remember the 70s, think Mateus Rosé...)

2019 Silvaner Retzstadter Langenberg [08 20] (MAYR30219A)
Made from 40-year-old vines in the heart of the vineyard, growing on very poor limestone soils that give only very small berries. It is lean, fine and silky, with bright citrus fruit and a smooth caressing minerality lightly touched by oak.

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.
