Germany’s Best Ultra-premium Dry Riesling Wines - BerlinRieslingCup 2017, Germany

Martin Zwick from Berlin is rapidly building up a reputation as being a mover and shaker in the German wine scene. This is due to the various Berlin Cups that he is organizing.

It all started with the Berlin Riesling Cup a few years ago, a blind tasting and ranking in November of what Martin Zwick considered the leading Grosses Gewächs wines - the ultra-premium dry wines of the VDP producers, Germany’s elite wine makers - that were released on September 1 of the same year. Initially, people did not pay much attention to the BerlinRieslingCup, but this has clearly changed over the years.

Today, the BerlinCup is no longer just about Grosses Gewächs wines. Martin added a (1) BerlinGutsweinCup – ranking entry level dry Riesling wines, a (2) BerlinKabinettCup – ranking lightly sweet Riesling wines at the Kabinett level and (3) BerlinSpätburgunderCup – ranking German Pinot Noir wines. For more, see below.

BerlinRieslingCup

The Berlin RieslingCup is a very special annual ranking of German wines, at least for 2 reasons. First, it includes only dry ultra-premium Rieslings, mainly Grosses Gewächs wines. So, (1) the segment of fruity-sweet and noble-sweet ultra-premium wines, which are so popular in the German export markets, is excluded as is the (2) dry ultra-premium non-Riesling white wine segment, which is being pushed by many in the German wine industry. Second, and what makes this ranking so interesting, it is a very early ranking, basically the first one after the release of the wines in September.

Grosses Gewächs (GG)

What is a Grosses Gewächs wine? There is currently a bit of confusion (and there will be even more confusion in the years to come) as (1) Grosses Gewächs was a term that was created by the VDP only a few years ago and (2) the VDP has created a new classification for German wines that differs radically from the German standard classification (and is still in the process of refining and implementing it). The latest revisions were those that came into effect with the vintage 2012.

Grosses Gewächs and the new German Wine Classification

Although many people think that there is only one wine classification system in Germany – the classification system of the Law of 1971 – this is not correct. True, the classification system of the Law of 1971 is the standard classification system in Germany and the vast majority of winemakers in Germany use this approach. A large number of winemakers, however, have moved away from the standard, in particular the VDP producers.

In a nutshell, the VDP is moving to a classification system that resembles very much the classification system in the Bourgogne. The classification of the VDP puts the terroir principle at the center of its classification approach.

With the latest modifications, the absolutely finest vineyards are called Grosse Lage and dry wines from these super top vineyards are called Grosses Gewächs. Grosses Gewächs wines are the finest dry wines from Germany’s finest vineyards. For legal reasons, the VDP producers use the terms VDP.Grosses Gewächs and VDP.Grosse Lage, instead of just Grosses Gewächs and Grosse Lage.

To qualify for the Grosses Gewächs label, a number of criteria need to be respected. (i) The fruit has to come from a Grosse Lage vineyard. (ii) At harvest, the grapes need to be at least at Spätlese level in terms of the sugar content. (iii) Only certain – typical - grape varieties are allowed, including Riesling and Spätburgunder. Riesling is the only varietal allowed for Grosse Lage wines in the Mosel, Nahe, and Mittelrhein, but grapes like Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), Lemberger, Frühburgunder, Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris), Gewürztraminer, and Silvaner are included in other regions. (iv) Further restrictions apply: there are yield restrictions; only hand picking of grapes is permitted and harvest must be late in the autumn.

BerlinRieslingCup 2016/17

The last BerlinRieslingCup did not take place shortly after the release of the 2016 GGs in late 2016, but was shifted into 2017. We will have to wait and see if this was a temporary or permantent shift.

The BerlinRieslingCup 2016/17 included 48 wines. The overwhelming majority of the wines were GGs from VDP members. There were a few non-GG ultra-premium dry wines from non-VDP members.

By definition, the 48 wines represented a subjective selection, but I think it probably included a substantial share of the ultra-premium Rieslings that could be the grand cru top wines of the 2015 vintage. 2 bottles came on the table. It is a blind tasting.

Hattenheim/ Rheingau: Lunch in 3 Restaurants with 3 Winemakers and 3 Chefs: Adlerwirtschaft and Weingut Hans Lang - Kaufmann, Zum Krug and Wein- und Sektgut Barth, Kronenschlösschen and Weingut Georg Müller Stiftung, Germany

Within 100 meters or so there are 3 outstanding restaurants in Hattenheim in the Rheingau: Adlerwirtschaft, Zum Krug and Kronenschlösschen. The latter had one star in the Michelin Guide for many years, but lost it last year. These 3 restaurants teamed up with 3 of the I would say 5 world class winemakers in Hattenheim for a joint lunch: Weingut Barth, Weingut Georg Müller Siftung and Weingut Hans Lang - Kaufmann.

The lunch started at 11:30 am and ended at 4:00 pm. Mark Barth of Wein- und Sektgut Barth, Eva Raps and Urban Kaufmann of Weingut Hans Lang - Kaufmann and Peter Winter of Weingut Georg Müller Stiftung came along on this gourmet trip. The chefs of the 3 restaurants greated us togather at the beginning of the tour and were of course present when we visited the respective restaurants.

The lunch started at the Adlerwirtschaft with 3 Amuse-Gueules prepared by the 3 chefs, 2 courses prepared by Chef Franz Keller and 3 wines of Weingut Hans Lang - Kaufmann: Riesling Sekt Brut, 2015 Hattenheimer Riesling und 2012 Hattenheim Wisselbrunnen GG, presented by Owner/ Winemaker Urban Kaufmann.

This was followed by 2 courses at Zum Krug with 2 sparklers of Wein- und Sektgut Barth: 2011 Hattenheim HASSEL Riesling Brut VDP. Grosse Lage  and 2011 „ULTRA“ Pinot Brut Natur begleitet.

The journey ended in the Kronenschlösschen with a meat course and the dessert. Peter Winter poured 2007 „Daniel“ Spätburgunder (Magnum) and 2013 Hattenheim Wisselbrunnen Riesling Spätlese.

The Rheingau

It is remarkable: For its entire length of nearly 560 miles, the Rhine flows north with one exception – a 28-mile stretch where the river changes its course. Here, it flows to the west, thereby enabling both the river and the vineyards facing it to bask in the warmth of the sun all day long. This is the Rheingau, one of the medium-size German wine regions. It is a quietly beautiful region, rich in tradition. Queen Victoria's enthusiasm for Hochheim's wines contributed to their popularity in England, where they, and ultimately, Rhine wines in general, were referred to as Hock.

 Picture: The Rheingau

The third President of the USA - and notable bon viveur - Thomas Jefferson visited the Rheingau in 1788 and wrote that the wine of the "Abbaye of Johnsberg is the best made on the Rhine without comparison … That of the year 1775 is the best." He also referred to the Rheingau’s Riesling as the "small and delicate Rhysslin which grows only from Hochheim to Rudesheim". Impressed by the quality of the Rheingau Riesling wines, he bought 100 grapevines to take back to his estate in Virginia.

The Rheingau enjoys a distinctly continental climate with cold winters and warm, but not hot, summers. The Rheingau is dominated by Riesling, accounting for 4/5 of the vineyard area. Wilhelm Weil, our host, produces only Riesling wines.

Hattenheim in the Rheingau

Although it is a small community, Hattenheim is a very important historical town in the Rheingau region. This town owns one of the most beautiful wine-tasting booths at the river shore in this area; it had already been mentioned in the year 954.

Wine-growing in Hattenheim has tradition, thanks to its proximity to the wine-growing monastery of Eberbach. It is certified in a wine-growing document shown in a book of the "Schroederbrudergemeinschaft" from 1442. This "brother's community" was in charge of carring the heavy wine barrels out of the cellars and load them in the ships on the river shore.

The city center at the marketplace with the venerable old City Hall and beautiful half-timbered houses gracefully decorate the small paved alleys. One of its architectural treasures is the Hattenheimer Fortress, which was built in 1100 by the Lord of Hattenheim and is since 1462 in possesion of the Baron Langwerth of Simmern. In the 1970's its almost destroyed roomtower was reconstructed by the Association of Fortresses and Improvement in over 20.000 hours of voluntary work. Nowadays the fortress is open to different wine festivities and other activities the whole year through.

Weingut Hans Lang - Kaufmann

Weingut Hans Lang - Kaufmann was founded in 1953, in the post World War II era. Johann Maximilian Lang, son of the founder, converted the winery to organic viticulture and became member of the Ecovin Association for Organic Viticulture in 2012. Dry wines have a long tradition at the estate and account for 90% of the portfolio. Recently. Weingut Hans Lang -Kaufmann was sold. Eva Raps, the former Managing Director of the VDP, the association of about 200 German elite winemakers, and her partner in life, Urban Kaufmann, a cheese producer from Switzerland, are the new owners.

Wein- und Sektgut Barth

The Wine and Sekt Estate Barth was founded in 1948 by the father of Norbert Barth, the current owner. Besides excellent wines, from early on Barth produced sparkling wines – Sekt – and in 1992 a Sekt manufactury was completed to be able to produce the Sekts entirely at the premises. All Sekts are bottle fermented in the méthod traditionelle starting with base wine production, subsequent bottling, bottle fermentation, hand-riddling, and disgorging. All Sekts remain on the lease between 24 and 36 months. In 2010 Barth released the first ever German sparkler made from a Premier Cru base wine. The novelty was named Barth Primus, and put Barth on the map for the serious Sekt lover.

Weingut Georg Müller Stiftung 

Georg Müller, the co-owner of the famous Eltville sparkling wine cellar, Matheus Müller, established the estate towards the end of the 19th century. In 1913, he donated the estate to his home community of Hattenheim: with the stipulation to use the profits for the benefit of the needy in the community. Thus, the Wine Estate became the Georg Müller Stiftung, owned and run by the local government.

Pictures: Christian G.E. Schiller and Peter Winter at Weingut Georg Mueller Stiftung

Things changed dramatically in 2003, when the local government decided to privatize the estate, which had produced good wines until the 1970s, but since then had deteriorated. Peter Winter purchased the Estate and – after many decades of a “Dornroeschenschlaf” - revived it, obviously with sizable financial investments and his enthusiasm and dynamism. Part of the credit also goes to Alf Ewald, the energetic young winemaker, he hired.

Peter Winter

When you spent an afternoon at Peter Winter’s Weingut Georg Mueller Stiftung in Hattenheim in the Rheingau, you are a bit reminded of Donald Hess. Donald Hess and Peter Winter appear to be on the same journey, that of wine and art.

Peter Winter’s journey started in 2003, when he purchased the Weingut Georg Mueller Stiftung. Before that turning point in life, Peter Winter was for over 40 years in various key positions in the German wine industry. Importantly, for 18 years he was the Chairman of the Board of one of the ten largest wine companies worldwide. He is also President of the German Wine Exporter Association and teaches at the University of Geisenheim.
