2012 Germany

There is enthusiastic talk of the 2012 harvest coming from Germany. Producers seem excited about the prospects warm days and cool nights have created. This is in stark contrast to early reports of cold, wet conditions of the spring and early summer and the problems with flower set and mildew they created.

Volumes are down slightly, but the quality is very high with aromatic and fruit-driven wines seeming to define the style of the vintage. Of course not all the grapes are in yet, though the grapes harvested have seen some of the best sugar levels in about a decade, promising a bumper crop of high quality sweet wines in 2012.
