Critical Acclaim

VN90 Vinous May 2016

"Representing a step up from the estate’s entry-level Riesling, this diversely sourced 15,000-bottle batch displays juicier, riper though still zesty lemon and tangerine along with smoky, carnal, mouthwatering savor typical of the best wines from Nackenheim and Nierstein’s collective “Red Slope.” The feel is firm but not at all austere, and the finish penetrates, invigorates and refreshes. (The wine’s name is the title of an autobiography, famous in Germany, by Karl Zuckmayer, a Nackenheim native and naturalized American best known for scripting The Blue Angel, and whose satirical, not-so-thinly-disguised portrait of Weingut Gunderloch in a hit 1925 play first earned him and the winery notoriety. About the unfortunate translation utilized on this wine’s English-language label, the less said the better. (Labeled as “A Piece of Me” for the U.S. market.)" (90 pts.)

Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.
