Weingut Johann Ohler
The special edition JFO, that comes in small quantities only, is something to look out for! They are exclusively available in vintages where everything was perfect. That standard is set very high by Sabine and Stefan, the wine maker, and smallest deviations will lead to that those wines are not launched that particular year. No compromize - as said before.
JFO wines 2010 include a:
- 2009 Riesling, that was spontanously fermented and thus giving for additional aromas and flavours (this is a wine with residual sugar)
- 2009 dry Chardonnay, that was aged in barrique
- 2007 Spätburgunder Alte Reben (Pinot Noir old vines), unfiltered
60% of the estate's vines are Riesling. The grape variety that thrives best in the soils of the respective vineyards. Spätburgunder counts for ca 20%, the rest is split between the white burgundy varietals and some Cabernet Sauvignon.
Wine prices range from € 4,70 to 60.
This small but fine estate is perhaps not so easy to find, but it is well worth getting to know further. Visit the website: http://www.weingut-ohler.de/ and say hi from me!
