GERMANY - An estimation of the quality wineries on the development of the vintage 2007: the quality wineries are deeply satisfied with the young wines they shelve in their cellars. Just as expected, they are continously developing.
In the cellars, the wines are developing optimally and already show a perfect balance between body and acid. The concentration of the alcohol is not too high, but on a perfect level. The fruit and the aroma are obvious and brilliant. The force of the minerals is intensified by the sustaining acid.
The first svelte and tangy Rieslings underline that this grape variety really is capable to bring forth something unique. It is the mixture of fruit, minerals, good concentration, complexity and a fine filigree structure. However, the higher qualities are still fermenting and taking time to mature, analogically to the period of vegetation.
Also the red wine specialists are avid: the red wines are vividly colored, thick, profound and structured equilibratedly (chem: Tannin). Lovers of fruity, elegant burgundies will definitely get their money's worth this year. (aw.yoopress)
