DECANTER 04/2018

Decanter’s tastings director Christelle Guibert recommends our 2016 Iphöfer Kalb Silvaner dry VDP.ERSTE LAGE in the Decanter magazine, section “weekday wines”: “A visionary estate that’s one of Franconia’s leading Silvaner producers. This is intense and focused with white stone and citrus fruits, the palate driven by fruit purity and minerality. Easy to spot with its distinctive bottle shape.” (Decanter 04/2018, p 95).


SELECTION 03//2018

The German food and beverage magazine "selection" has awarded our wine estate "Silvaner Wine Estate of the Year" and Andrea Wirsching was awarded "Female Wine Maker of the Year".


REVIEW JANCISROBINSON.COM

The British wine critic Tamyln Currin published a wonderful article about our Silvaner VDP.GUTSWEIN on www.jancisrobinson.com - absolutely worth reading!"It smells of cool early mornings and elderflower cordial, and then, if you give it a chance to open in the glass, a little bit of nuttiness – that cobnut/green almond flavour that goes so beautifully with a bowl of salted pistachios or a plate piled high with steamed asparagus. (...) It's also light enough to enjoy a glass by itself – a summer staple for soaking up evening sunlight after work." >> read full article
