Virtual Tasting: Focus on Germany
The Oxford Wine Company’s next Zoom tasting is aimed at showcasing the quality and diversity of the German wine scene today.
We’ll begin our tasting in Pfalz with the highly acclaimed, barrel fermented Oliver Zeter Sauvignon Blanc Fumé, and the Villa Wolf Pinot Gris – also known as ‘Grauburgunder’ – a gorgeous ripe, aromatic expression of the grape. Next up will be a pair of Rieslings: the S.A. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett and the Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese. These two wines were both grown in the same prestigious Mosel vineyard but by two different producers, and they were harvested at different ripeness levels which should make for a fascinating and delicious comparison! From there, we will move on to the only red wine of the tasting, the Fürst Tradition Pinot Noir from Franconia. German Pinot Noir is still somewhat under the radar, but the quality can be truly stellar and at prices that don’t quite reach the heights of Burgundy. To wrap up our evening, we will taste another wine from Oliver Zeter – the Goldschatz Trockenbeerenauslese. This is a real enigma of a wine, created almost by accident and blending vintages and varieties into one sweet and delicious treasure-in-a-bottle.
