Weissburgunder, Peters, 2016

Weissburgunder, Johannes Peters, 2016, White-wine from Germany

6.5 points

Recently, I opened a 2016 Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder) by Johannes Peters and was extremely pleased and surprised. What a good wine! At the beginning of my writing on this blog, I described in more detail about the wine regions on the lower Saar and also about the winemaker Johannes Peters Peters, Scharzhofberger, Riesling, Spätlese, 2007, who stands in the shadow of some more “famous” and larger wineries, but has a parcel on the world famous Scharzhofberg, where he harvests a noble Riesling every year. 2016, so not so young for a so-called “quality wine” and still it comes with a refined freshness. Age does well to the wine, you might think that the wine has only just reached its peak. In addition to the surprising freshness, which is not to be confused with sour, the wine is delicate and overall pleasantly soft. A wonderful Burgundian from the Saar, for this quality, fabulously inexpensive and very much recommended, if you do not want a Riesling to your asparagus. It also goes well with roast pork or just on the side.

Some time ago I posted two reviews about Johannes Peter’s Scharzhofberger Riesling. You can find a lot of information about the winery at: https://avdwineandfood.net/2015/05/11/peters-schwarzhofberger-riesling-spatlese-2007/ and https://avdwineandfood.net/2015/08/01/peters-scharzhofberger-riesling-spatlese-2012/.

This particular wine, Martha’s Weinberg, actually does not appear on Peter’s website. Johannes Peters writes: Continue reading “Peters, Riesling Auslese, 2007, Martha’s Weinberg”

Another remarkable Riesling! At the label it is said Mosel but in real it is a wine from the Saar again as for instance all Scharzhofberg Riesling.

Ayler Kupp, Riesling Auslese, 2012, Bischöfliche Weingüter Trier

Ayler Kupp, Riesling Auslese, 2012, Bischöfliche Weingüter Trier, White-wine from Germany

The first nip is a different note than many other Riesling from this area which is very close to the famous vineyard Scharzhofberg at the river Saar. It is a little bit tart and, it appears creamier and has more petrol. This Riesling is perhaps also a little bit less mineral although the soil is shist. Due to a bit more modest mineralitiy there is a different balance among Riesling’s typical fruitiness and freshness. The fruits are less citron but a bit more mature as apple and gooseberry but also some exotic flavors. The wine sparkles a bit on one tongue which is refreshing and has a very long reverberation. Although it is an Auslese this wine is dry and even a little bit fumy if you can say so.

Peters, Scharzhofberger, Riesling, Spätlese, 2007

Peters, Scharzhofberger, Riesling, Spätlese, 2007, White Wine from Germany

Scharzhofberg (Wiltingen) is really one of the most famous Riesling vineyards of Germany. Although people would consider this is at the Mosel but it isn’t as the hill faces to south at the right side of the smaller river Saar. Similar to many other vineyards of the wine area Mosel, Saar, Ruwer the soil of this hillside contains weathered schist, rocks as well as ferruginous and clayey soil.
