Press Reviews

Rings, run by brothers Steffen and Andreas Rings, is not so much one of Germany's rising stars as a risen one. The bone-dry 2015 Ungsteiner Nussriegel, from an erste lage (the German equivalent of a first growth) is typically exciting, with intense green-apple, spice and peach flavours, a dazzling, long, lime-cordial finish and a texture that comes from the concentration of fruit. Drink it as an aperitif or with any number of fish dishes, salad starters or vegetable options. It can handle spice too.

Germany Vintage Guide

An early harvest following frost earlier in the season means 2017 has produced excellent light, fruity wines with great finesse. By contrast to the easy 2015 vintage, growers had to earn their stripes in 2016The early season was wet which reduced yields and a hot summer with cool nights has meant excellent aromatics and good sugar levels, all wines a little lighter than 2015. The harvest in 2015 took place in ideal conditions and produced wonderfully ripe wines in all styles. Kabinetts are a bit short in quantity but the dry wines especially are very approachable. 2014 saw a good crop of light, well-balanced wines with well-integrated acidity. This followed the rather lower yielding 2013 which afforded the wines good acid structure. 2012 and 2011 both produced high quality wines. Like 20132010 was another low-yielding vintage, giving concentrated wines with good acidity. On the other hand, 2009 was a great vintage with a warm, dry, consistent growing season. 2008 had a late harvest; Eiswein did well. The outstanding vintages of 2007 and 2005 sandwiched the rather more tricky 2006. Crisper in style, the 2004 vintage was nevertheless good, saved by a dry autumn. The unusually hot year of 2003 gave some interesting if atypical wines, best at the top end of the sweetness scale. The wines of 2002 are easy-going, soft and approachable - handy, coming after the stunning and long-lived wines of 2001.The Millennium vintage was spoiled by rain at harvest, which also affected the 1999 vintage though not so badly. Eiswein shone in 1998 which generally produced easy, attractive wines. This came after the big crop of 1997 in which Spätlese wines showed particularly well. 1996 was a lighter vintage but some attractive wines were made. In 1995, fortune favoured the brave and growers who harvested late made some super wines. The 1994 vintage suffered variable weather but did improve to give some excellent BA and TBA wines. 1993 was a very good vintage in the Mosel in particular.
