Vintage description: The year started with a very early budbreak. Due to the mild winter, the physiological development of the plants was about 2 to 3 weeks ahead of the long-term average. The subsequent drought in spring and summer helped the grapes to blossom quickly and well. However, the heat that followed and the lack of rain from June onwards kept the winegrowers on their toes. The drought was interrupted by local storms that ravaged the vineyards, sometimes violently, with heavy rain and hail. In Wehlen and the surrounding area, however, we were largely spared. Until shortly before the harvest, the grapes looked splendid. With the beginning of the harvest, the long-awaited rain set in. The abundant rainfall forced us to harvest very quickly. The grapes were harvested fully ripe, with an average must weight of 84°Oe in the late harvest range. The Riesling had a golden yellow colour, the musts were rich in aroma with a great, balanced acid structure The 2019 wine is balanced, very full-bodied, and has a great fruit-acid play. The vintage offers extremely complex wines with wonderful minerality and power
