Blind Tasting Buddies: White Wines from Germany and Austria

An exercise in deductive tasting, all levels are welcome. Each week we present a theme, and focus our tasting and theory work accordingly.

The theme for this week is German and Austrian White Wines. We will do a comparative tasting of wines from those regions, including Riesling, Grüner Veltiner and Pinot Blanc. Recommended producers:

Germany

  • Nahe: Dönnhoff, Schäfer-Fröhlich, Emrich-Schönleber
  • Mosel: Fritz Haag, Maximin Grünhaus, Selbach-Oster
  • Pfalz: Dr. Burklin-Wolf, Von Winning, Koehler-Ruprecht
  • Rheingau: Robert Weil, Schloss Vollrads, Georg Breuer

Austria

  • Kamptal: Schloss Gobelsburg, Brundlmayer, Hirsch
  • Kremstal: Nigl, Lenz Moser, Stadt Krems
  • Wachau: F.X. Pichler, Emmerich Knoll, Peter Veyder-Malberg

The tasting will be augmented by a discussion of the region. Each guest will prepare a brief Theory presentation for the group, on any aspect of the region. One to five minutes in length is perfect! Some possible topic ideas:

  • What are the rules outlined by the Codex Wachau?
  • Where are the coolest and warmest regions of Germany?
  • Why do rivers play such an important role in German and Austrian wine regions?
  • Who are the most important producers of the Kamptal area for Grüner Veltliner?
