Icewine-Emperor: Drautz-Able on top with 270° Oechsle
Fast zeitgleich lasen in den letzten drei Tagen die VDP-Güter aus den Anbaugebieten Ahr, Franken, Mosel, Pfalz, Rheingau und Württemberg - Hier ein Foto der Lese bei VDP-Gut S.A. Prüm im Graacher Himmelreich (Foto: S.A. Prüm)
Almost simultaneously the VDP wineries from the wine-growing regions Ahr, Franconia, Moselle, Palatinate, Rhinegau and Wuerrtemberg started their pickings – Here a photo of the picking at the VDP-winery S.A. Prüm in the Graacher Himmelreich (Photo: S.A. Prüm)

GERMANY - "What a wine year", German vintagers summarize excitedly but also in shock. After some freak weather in the spring that only barely spared vintagers in the wine-growing regions, the weather conditions were almost perfect for the riping season.

 

"The amount of heat and the ripening conditions were very good", said all the vintagers from around the area. The combination of sun and humidity was almost perfect in all of the wine-growing regions and it was already clear in August that the vintage 2009 would be a special one. The grapes in many areas had a real ripening edge, which then turned into quality.

Then, in the middle of December, it was convenient for the "super-wine year 2009" that all over Germany there was a cold period with up to -20° Oechsle - the conditions for a Eiswein-picking thus perfect. There were frosty temperatures of -8° to -15° celsius in the German wine-growing regions since 18 December until today, 20 December.

"We were able to pick Riesling grapes with 163° Oechsle in the early morning of 18 December at a temperature of -10° celsius in my favorite vineyard, the Altenahrer Eck", says Wolfgang Hehle from the winery Deutzerhof from Maischoß at the Ahr. This good result was topped by the winery Drautz-Able at the first try with 310° Oechsle, then with 270° Oechsle. "Here in the Heibronn Stiftsberg, district Riedenberg, there were -15° celsius this morning, 20 December", says Markus Drautz, who can thus be called the "Eiswein-Kaiser" of Germany in our survey of the Eiswein picking.

The following results are representative data of the VDP quality wineries: (aw.yoopress / translator c.siegel)
