This Silvaner Grand Cru is an award-winning wine. At the Decanter Asia Wine Awars 2017 it was awarded the gold medal scoring 96 points.
“Intensity, purity and elegance is the tripod of this outstanding wine. The extreme energy and drive of the wine is formidable, the fruit flavours of grapefruit and peach dominant. Sends you out through the finish with plenty to remember.” (Decanter 09/2017)
The site 'Julius-Echter-Berg' is located on the steep slopes of Mount 'Schwanberg'. According to the specialised press it belongs without doubt to the top vineyard sites in Franconia. The gypsum soil with sediments of schilf -sandstone has a high impact on the wines: it provides them with a unique fruity, fine-aromatic and mineral character.
Thanks to its long-lasting finish, this wine ensures an even longer enjoyment. Indeed, as a young wine, this Grand Cru is already a pure indulgence. However, its prime time is yet to come. The mature wine devotee will open this wine in 20 years’ time with the greatest pleasure of experiencing its aromas which will by then have developed to perfection.
Wirsching's exceptional Silvaner is available in traditional Bocksbeutel bottles - typical of the Franken wine-making region.
