    Hamish Anderson, The Daily Telegraph

    The search for good Pinot outside Burgundy, then, is all the more relevant, and the country I recommend is Germany. Wilfully obscure, perhaps, until you consider that it's the third-largest producer of the variety worldwide. Plantings have increased considerably and so has exposure, with German Pinot now on the best wine lists.

    There is such a great diversity in German wines. In Riesling alone you have one of the most versatile grapes known to man. [...] For people who haven’t delved into the new generations of winemakers I strongly urge that you do. Whatever your style is, I can guarantee there is a German wine for you.

    The new, drier-style wines from the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Nahe and Mosel are so food-friendly. These crisp-fruity, clean and minerally wines are especially suited to Oriental cuisine.

    Kabinett rieslings from Mosel, a style with a delicate touch of sweetness and low in alcohol, are a world-class wine and loved by connoisseurs.

    Jean Smullen, Chef Magazine

    German wines are seeing a small revival at the moment, the UK on trade is re-discovering German Riesling and German Pinot Noir is also gaining traction. It is now unusual for a top restaurant not to have a German wine on its list.

    Crisp and refreshing are oft-used terms when talking about white wine, but quality German Riesling is like a parallel universe for your palate.

    Jane Clare, Various Regionals

    I love Pinot Noir and I love Pinot Gris […] So imagine my giddiness when I visited what can only be described as Pinot paradise - the Pfalz and Baden regions in the south of Germany. Each is fascinating in its own right and both are home to the most amazing wines from the Pinot family.

    Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph

    Of course what really matters is the quality - is [German Pinot Noir] any good? The answer is a resounding yes: you can find Spätburgunder that has an astonishing fluidity, and that, like the best burgundies, almost seems to float.

    Malcolm Gluck, Condé Nast Traveller

    Of course, the Riesling grape is grown elsewhere […] but only Germany produces young yet dazzlingly multi-layered Rieslings of sufficient heft to match thistle with a sauce containing not just anchovies but capers and vinegar.

    Graham Sherwood, Choice Magazine

    These new German wines, many of which are made from the Riesling grape, are a far cry from the medium sweet melanges of the past; instead, they are perfect expressions of what cool-climate white wines can be -vivacious, crisp with cleanly acidic fruit.

    I have been following the evolution of German Pinot Noir keenly and was thrilled by the quality on show at the recent ABS/Ripley tasting. […] Buy German Pinot Noir now before it follows burgundy into the unaffordable stratosphere.
