Germany

German wine is primarily produced in the southwest of Germany, along river Rhine and its tributaries, with the oldest plantations going back to the Roman era. Approximately 60 percent of the German wine production is situated in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, where 6 of the 13 regions (Anbaugebiete) for quality wine are situated. Germany has about 102,000 hectares (252,000 acres or 1,020 square kilometers) of vineyard, which is around one tenth of the vineyard surface in Spain, France or Italy. The total wine production is usually around 9 million hectoliters annually, corresponding to 1.2 billion bottles, which places Germany as the eighth largest wine-producing country in the world.

Becker-Landgraf, Riesling Herrgottspfad trocken, 2012

Becker-Landgraf, Riesling Herrgottspfad trocken, 2012

This is the latest release of the top end Riesling from Becker-Landgraf. Rich, round and will get even better with a few years of age.

Dennis' insider hint: if there is any older vintages of this wine available (they go quickly) then treat yourself to this wine with a few extra years of bottle aging. You will be amazed at the complexity and body of this dry Riesling.
