Another disappointing vintage throughout Germany
Non-stop rain in April and May delayed the budding and the flowering in June was dreadful. Cold rain continued through July, August and September and it was only a hot, mild October and early November that allowed some grapes to ripen.
No region escaped the results of this weather and the vintage was almost as bad as the 1980.
A few Eisweins were produced but some of them had the super-concentrated taste of unripe grapes.
