The Other Whites of Germany

Tired of Riesling? Impossible.

Let’s start again. Aside from Riesling, are you ready to explore some the other exciting grape varieties that Germany has to offer? We have made a handy selection from our top growers to show you that it doesn’t just have to be the obvious one, and are also offering an exciting case full of the underrated Silvaner grape, mostly from Franken, its leading exponent.

The "Other Whites Of Germany" Case
Six different varietals: some are ‘international’ varieties that find a new expression in Germany’s cool climate: Chardonnay, grown on limestone soils in Rheinhessen where it gives a steely Chablisesque style, a zingy Pinot Blanc from the Pfalz with a hint of minerality, and a Pinot Gris from Baden, up there with the best of Veneto's offerings, with a dash of skin contact to give complexity. Finally a Muscat like you have never seen it, pure highly aromatic and bone dry.

And then there are more Germanic varieties: Silvaner from Franken, now coming into its own as a serious varietal, and the brisk increasingly popular Scheurebe, this one from a star grower in Rheinhessen.

The "All In For Silvaner" Case
Pure Silvaner: often dismissed as an anodyne poor relation to Riesling, in good hands Silvaner can produce wines of great magic. The best come from Franken, where plantings outstrip those of Riesling, and in fact our main grower there, Rudolf May, is replacing his Riesling vines with what he does best. Silvaners are not as aromatic or zingy as Rieslings, but they are great reflectors of terroir. They have a wonderfully appealing cool freshness combined with mineral notes, and are great food companions. At the upper – GG – level, they are very exciting wines with long drinking windows.
