Silvaner-Rebsorte

 

SILVANER IN THE MEES WINE ESTATE

 


More than 50 years old Silvaner vines stand on deep terraced gravel soils in KREUZNACHER ROSENBERG.

The deep-rooted vines produce very aromatic wines. Multiple yield reductions, defoliation of the grape zone and a long ripening period produce extremely healthy, high-quality grapes.

 

WHITE WINES OF THE GRAPE VARIETY SILVANER

 

Silvaner is more demanding on the soil than Riesling. Wines that grow on rock or gravel surfaces,

limited to the yield, introduce themselves fresh and fruity, with fine aroma of earth and of herbs and a riesling-like character.

The acid is milder than the Riesling but not as fruity, with more hay and grass aromas. A late harvest due bred, nuanced Silvaner with pleasant acidity.

For its aromas (gooseberry, hay, quince, caramel, smoke), Silvaner is a very good accompaniment to meals, and not only to asparagus. 

origin:

unclear, either in Transylvania (lat Silva = Forest.) or Austria.

It is certain that Alberich Degen, a Cistercian abbot, brought  the Silvanergrape to Franconia in 1665.
