Region 'Germany' - Year 1980
|drink now||Few wines of lasting quality were made this year|
A miserable year for the Riesling! The cold winter delayed the budding; the flowering was late and spoiled; it rained continuously from the end of July to the end of September, with storms, hail and floods in August. Finally, the Riesling vintage started at the end of October and was cut short by sharp frosts at the beginning of November, which prevented any further ripening of the grapes.
Any wines from any region would probably be undrinkable today.
None worth mentioning
