Tasting notes

Vineyards were first planted on this German estate in 1334. This dry Silvaner has a fragrant floral nose, and invigorating notes of pear, yellow plum, apricot, quince and light candied fruit in the body. A bit of spritz accompanies the replays of flavours on the palate. Some nice steely notes add to the experience. A medium-bodied charmer, with good acidity and length.

2009 Würzburger Pfaffenberg Silvaner Kabinett Trocken

Varietal(s): 100% Silvaner

Region/Appellation: Franken, Germany

Alcohol: 10%

Tasting notes

The Franken region's wines are unique for two reasons. First, their principal grape is Silvaner; and second, they use an unusual bottle known as the bocksbeutel (similar in shape to the Mateus Rosé vessel). In Franken, Silvaner achieves its finest expression. The aromas offer layered floral, pear, apple and mineral notes. The racy acidity in this medium- to full-bodied wine gives it tremendous verve.

Varietal(s): 100% Silvaner

Region/Appellation: Franken, Germany

Tasting notes

Riesling may be the signature grape of Germany, but in the Franken region Silvaner is the star. This crisp and refreshing wine shows aromas of green apple, mineral, flowers and a hint of fresh herbs. Dry, with a light body and lively acidity. Crisp and juicy apple flavours shine on the mid-palate, leading to a minerally finish.
