=> No year like the other:
With the extremes in temperature and (non-)precipitation, the unpredictability of the sequence of weather situations also seems to increase from vintage to vintage: “Normal” years apparently no longer exist.
Thus, the course of this year's season also had its surprises in store. On the positive side, we were spared the dreaded late frosts. Likewise from hail, even with large amounts of precipitation in July and August. No sooner did we begin to worry about the approaching harvest in the wet, than the late summer temperatures rose to September and October. Plenty of sunshine ensured a rising mood barometer among the harvest team, a fat and finally for a fantastic physiological ripeness of our grapes.
=> No quality without selection:
We harvested for a little more than four weeks, generously selecting and bringing home only the best grapes in acceptable quantities. Now we can be rightly excited!
=> Great praise for Große Gewächse:
2020 Spätburgunder GG – “On the palate, the wine comes across as firm, clear and cool with a tannin that is firm to the bite but seems ripe. There is also the typical light iron note. The wine offers dark, crisp fruit, a nice grip and a cool vein.” (Originalverkorkt /Christoph Raffelt@originalverkorkt) “Münzberg's Snake's Whistle has some smoke and herbal ethereal notes, floral nuances and quite fine, rather cool fruit with some bite. This is already drinking nicely despite its youth.” (Marcus Hofschuster@samhofschuster)
2022 Weißburgunder GG: “Münzberg Schlangenpfiff is even more on the elegant side, upbeat, yellow-fruited, then stolid, punchy, with nice phenolics. Really good.” (Schnutentunker/Felix Bodmann @schnutentunker)
=> Important Dates:
On November 11, we will be guests at the Mosbacher Winery for the Long Night of Wineries in the Mittelhaardt region.
On December 1, we invite ourselves to the kitchen tables of our “Zoom Community” for the online tasting “Münzberg fer Dehääm”, which we present together with the Karl Schaefer Winery.
We look forward to seeing you again for wine – here on the Münzberg.
Cordially Gunter and Friedrich Keßler and the Münzberg team
