Winemaker Notes

This Riesling is dry on the palate, but also succulent and lively with typical earthy Pfalz fruit and excellent acidity. Pair this food-flexible dry Riesling with traditional seafood and white meat preparations.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Firm yet unctuous, with a flinty essence to the white plum, currant and chamomile flavors, supported by concentrated acidity. Shows fine balance and plenty of snap on the spicy finish, revealing hints of dried pineapple and mango. Drink now through 2017. 840 cases made.

Pfeffingen Oenologist Jan Eymael Winery Image

Pfeffingen, idyllically located amidst its vineyards, is operated by oenologists Jan Eymael, his wife Karin and his mother Doris. All three of them are passionate wine-growers, whose unconditional endeavors to achieve top quality, even on a small scale, make this traditional Pfälzer family operation truly special. They strive to cultivate their 15 hectares (37 acres) of vines to yield unique wines that are rich in minerals and fruit. Pfeffingen has numbered among the best wine estates of Germany for years. Sense of family is given pride of place at Pfeffingen. Four generations of the Eymael and Fuhrmann families live and work together at the attractive estate situated on the Deutsche Weinstrasse (German Wine Road). Both families can look back on a long viticultural tradition. Their coat of arms to this day, with its mythical unicorn, was conferred in 1622 by Emperor Ferdinand II.

The Eymael and Fuhrmann families tend their vines and grapes with great care. Various vineyard procedures require manual labor. In all, vineyard maintenance is as ecologically friendly as possible and low yields are a matter of course. The grapes are harvested by hand, by experienced pickers. The vineyards and growing conditions at Pfeffingen are optimal for the “king of white wine varietals” – Riesling. The chalky soils also provide excellent conditions for Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). The specialty of the house is the aromatic varietal Scheurebe (shoy´ray beh), named after the grape breeder Georg Scheu, who crossed Riesling and an unkown wild grape in 1916 to produce this delicious grape variety – which has yielded wines of remarkable quality for decades at Pfeffingen.
