Wine view December 2018
The 2018s are fun in the glass
In November, we praised the 2018 wines as a sample from the barrel. In recent weeks, many winemakers have diligently filled.
Not with the focus on presenting the wines as "The New 2018er" but quite pragmatically out of the necessity that the 2017ers were drunk as a result of last year's small harvest and they needed supplies for the Christmas business. Many wineries market more than half of the entire annual quantity in the last quarter of a year.
And so you can already be impressed by the brilliant year 2018. These are almost exclusively white and rosé wines that delight with their opulent fresh fruit paired with a pleasantly mild acidity. Because you like to drink a second glass over the holidays and can get excited about the whole family.
You probably will not hear a winemaker this year. "Fullhouse" it was recently in a renowned winegrower magazine. And that quantity and quality were equally good you rarely found before. Only this year intensively played ice wine poker of the winemakers is put to a hard patience. Over the Christmas it should be warmer again, so it will probably be nothing more with the harvest this year.
