Pfalz

Pfalz

Known as the Palatinate to the English, the region of Pfalz was for long a vinicultural backwater that has finally realised that it is effectively a continuation of Alsace with many of that area's advantages.  A new generation of young winemakers is tailoring climate and conditions to grape variety and many are estate-bottling their wines to guarantee quality.  Pfalz is among the most exciting and improving regions in Germany.

Styles of Wine

Pfalz has started to produce excellent red and white wines that are often stronger in alcohol and more modern in style than many German wines.  The whites are generally dry and the use of oak casks, almost unheard of in the more famous regions of Germany, is common for the ageing of reds.

Key Vines

Spätburgunder, Weissburgunder and Grauburgunder, known over the border in Alsace as Pinots Noir, Blanc and Gris, have done well in the south of the region, as has Riesling.  In the north, Riesling is once again prized along with Gewürztraminer and Scheurebe.  Dornfelder, a red grape, is either drunk young and fruity or aged in oak for greater complexity.  In keeping with the region's international style, Chardonnay is also grown.

Climate and Conditions

This is a dry and mild region that is warm in the summer and autumn.  This makes it one of the more hospitable areas of Germany for the production of quality wine.
