Silvaner

Silvaner

Once widely planted in Central Europe, Silvaner is now losing ground to Riesling; in Germany and Alsace, it comprises only around 15% of vines planted.

The grape was a main contributor to Liebfraumilch, tarnishing its reputation as it was often over-produced and hence quality was compromised to great detriment.

In Alsace, lower yields mean a small revival. The new wines being made have a refreshing sweetness, accompanied by good acidity and a real depth of fruit flavour.
