Quick Facts

Silvaner is a great variety with an earthiness attached to its tart pear flavors. Juliane's version is crisp and refreshing and completely lacking the heaviness sometimes associated with (Grüner) Silvaner.

The Wine’s Story

Silvaner is probably best suited for greatness in Franken, but is actually widespread throughout Rheinhessen as well. When poorly made it becomes dull, earthy and anything but charming, but properly made it can produce amazingly rich and structured wines. It’s always way less elegant than Riesling, so better refer to it as a contrasting variety, suitable for the dinner table, and in the end, that’s where you usually find us anyway!
