Baden is Germany’s most southerly and warmest wine region, a narrow strip nestled between the Black Forest and the Rhine River. Indigenous vines have existed since the end of the Ice Age, and wine-making began to spread throughout the region starting in the 2nd century. From there, little is known about the specifics of who was making it and in what styles, since the area was ruled by various outside counts after the Roman era into the 12th century, when the territory was officially declared. By the 16th century, the wines from the “Upper Rhine” were exported to other parts of Europe, and were well known for their powerful structure and quality.
 
The soil types vary throughout the region, with areas of clay, granite, limestone, keuper, sand, glacial sediment, and volcanic ash (mostly in the Kaiserstuhl subregion). The starring grape is the red Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), which fulfills some of its best ripening potential and tannic structure here. The most common Read more »

    Wine review by mark


  • Franz Keller Weissburgunder "S" 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh, clean and light aromas are slightly crisp and yeasty. Round flavors of melon, lemon and a bit of saline on this complex wine with a hit of tea leaf. There's a nice minerality and freshness here which provide good structure. Read More

  • Deppisch Rivaner Trocken 'Golf' Germany Franken 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting but different German white made from the Rivaner grape (which according to Cellar Tracker is Muller-Thurgau). Very slightly "grapey" but not overly so, with some peach/apricot on the front end and a hint of minerality. Soft acidity, short finish but a decent mid week change of pace. Read More

  • Pieroth Burg Layer Schlosskapelle Kabinett-Nahe Muller-Thurgau-Pradikatswein 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A very robust white wine, this Muller-Thurgau can stand alone, without any food as accompaniment. It can hold its own against heavy appetizers and Mexican or Mediterranean cuisines with its full body and strong finish. The 2011 vintage has a cellaring potential of about 5 years but will probably be best in 2014-2015. Read More

    Wine review by mepatton


  • I'm new to Snooth and not well versed in the world of wine. Riesling is our ... a source of a wine from Baden Wurttemberg in Germany owned and operated since the 1600s by the Trautwein family. My last name is Troutwine and my ancestors were from that area of Germany. Possibly a very distant cousin.I think it would be a cool thing to have a supp... Read More

  • Staatsweingut Freiburg Riesling Kabinett Feinherb 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This nearly dry Feinherb is simple with a shy nose and light extract. Over priced and uninspiring. My rating -- 80 Read More

  • Staatsweingut Freiburg Muller-Thurgau Spatlese 2003

    Snoothrank:

    For such a good year, this 2003 wine from Baden is lacking fruit. This spatlese is made in a drier style but is probably 1% RS. Its 12% alc indicates an attempt to keep it on the dry side. It is more Burgundian than German. Although acceptable as a Burgundian style wine, it lacks the classic German mineral and aromatic perfume that make German w... Read More

  • Oberbergen Pinot Noir 2008

    Snoothrank:

    On the lighter side of medium-bodied, this German Pinot Noir has nice, tart cherry fruit with undertones of sweet spices - perfect as the weather starts to chill. Roasted chicken with carrots, onions, and perhaps butternut squash, anyone? Read More
