Mosel Fine Wines – Vintage Report 2016

“The Independent Review of Mosel Riesling” By Jean Fisch and David Rayer

Roman Niewodniczanski is bold and direct with his assessment of his 2016 vintage: “This is the finest vintage I have ever made, and this despite the fact that the year started with quite some pressure in late spring. We had to multiply the preventive treatments by hand, and we really worked our socks off and came unscathed through. At the end the yields were more or less what we expected at the beginning. The summer proved ideal and gave us beautifully clean grapes. Despite this, we went three times through each vineyard to make sure we got only the best fruit for our desired wines. We started the harvest on October 3 and finished it by November 5. A major advantage in 2017 was that we were finally able to use our new cellar facilities above the Saarfeilser vineyard. Overall, the 2016 wines provide so much drinking pleasure, with fruit and elegance to boot. I just love the vintage!”
