Weingut Karl H. Johner-Rivaner 2008
Established in 1985 after working ten years in the english wine industry, Karl Heinz Johner and his wife Irene founded a little Weingut (Estate) in their home village "Bischoffingen" in the Kaiserstuhl. His focus was on the Burgundian styles - wines full of structure and pure elegance. Despite having to overcome problems relating to winemaking in the Kaiserstuhl and German wine laws the young Weingut soon established himself as a pioneer of a new German winestyle recognised as being of an International class. Today "Weingut Karl H Johner" is considered one of the best Estates in Germany and is recognised amongst most wine experts. This beautiful Rivaner offers a nose of apples, with citrusy and apricot notes. The palate is characterised by fine minerally qualities.
We belong to the best Producers in Germany of Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. Hand crafted and vinified with great care and burgundian aspect, the wines are complex, rich and special. We also have a second winery in New Zealand called Johner Estate
