What are some good German wines
As the German Wine Institute (DWI) reports, thanks to the sunny and dry late summer, German wine producers harvested very ripe and very healthy grapes, which were also perfectly colored in the red wine sector. The first white wines in the barrel are correspondingly aromatic and extremely fruity, and the red wines show great potential.
The harvest is already over after three to four weeks
The summer in September also accelerated the grape harvest a lot. In bright sunshine and temperatures often well over 25 degrees Celsius, the sugar content in the grapes rose quickly, so that many varieties were ready to be harvested at the same time. Harvesting was often done in the early morning hours or at night in order to get the grapes into the cellar as cool as possible.
In many companies, this year's grape harvest was already over after three to four weeks. Some winemakers also leave grapes hanging because they speculate on the preparation of Beerenauslese or Trockenbeerenauslese, because the vintage offers good opportunities for these noble sweet specialties.
Late frosts in Franconia, Saale-Unstrut and Saxony
Another effect of the hot September weather was a relatively strong evaporation in the berries, which in some cases was associated with significant losses in volume. In some regions, this was exacerbated by persistent drought, because the rainfall in the wine regions was extremely unevenly distributed throughout the year. In Franconia, Saale-Unstrut and Saxony, late frosts have also led to further crop losses.
Large harvest differences in the growing areas
The estimated yields in the thirteen German wine-growing regions are correspondingly heterogeneous. They range from minus 38 percent compared to the ten-year average yield in Swiss francs to a plus of 31 percent on the Hessische Bergstrasse. In the two largest German growing regions, Rheinhessen and Pfalz, average to slightly above-average harvest volumes can be expected with a minus of one percent and an increase of six percent, respectively. Baden and Württemberg each estimate a harvest minus of ten percent.
Nationwide, the currently forecast yields for the 2020 vintage are expected to be around 8.6 million hectoliters, roughly at the level of the ten-year average of 8.7 million hectoliters and three percent above the previous year's yield.
