Not Just For Riesling
Though longtime associated with mass-produced, sugar-ridden bottles, Germany’s winemaking scene has skyrocketed over the last few decades. New classification systems, sweetness charts, and intense labelling laws have been put in place, helping consumers navigate their way through the vast selection of thin, green bottles.
Though Riesling still reigns king, Muller-Thurgau, Dornfelder, and Spatburgunder (that is, Pinot Noir) have begun claiming territory over the region’s 13 wine producing regions. The country’s many rivers, along with red and blue slate soils, act as heat retainers, providing warmth to the regions’ chilly vineyard sites. Cool temperatures preserve acidity in grapes, a necessary component for the regions’ zingy dry whites and signature sweet wines.
