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.

2016 HIMMELSPFAD SILVANER GG [16 17] Retzstadter Langenberg (MAYR40216A)
From the warmest part of the Langenberg vineyard, which is composed primarily of fossil-rich fine limestone. The soil is poor, and keeps yields low, and the vines are the estate's oldest, at fifty-five. There is rich pithy citrus fruit, lots of power and a long elegant finish. Drink 2018 ' 2027

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.

2016 ROTHLAUF SILVANER GG [18 17] Th?ngersheimer Johannisberg (MAYR42216A)
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. Aged in equal parts in steel, concrete egg and wood, this is elegant, perfumed and fine, with a delicate mineral structure and real length. Quite a revelation. Drink 2018 ' 2027
