The wines at a glance

The rating of the wine reflects the mean value from a tasting by our jury.
The wine was evaluated in a blind tasting.
The wine was tasted as a barrel sample or before an official test number (Amtliche Prüfungsnummer or Staatliche Prüfnummer) was issued.
The wine exhibited a sensory abnormality during our tasting. This does not necessarily have to be a qualitative defect or a wine fault. In the case of a qualitative impairment, a devaluation or rejection was made depending on the type and severity of the defect or wine fault.

2012 Spätburgunder Widder Qualitätswein trocken


Pfalz • Geschützte Ursprungsbezeichnung (g. U.)

Amtliche Prüfungsnummer 5041030 18 14 • 13 % alcohol


Tasted on 3 May 2020 by Werner Elflein

Bright, slightly clouded garnet red with high transparency. Spicy, in the beginning fine fruity scent of raspberry and cranberry. Currently in a difficult condition, because the new wood is quite dominant in its expression compared to the elegant, sweetish Pinot fruit. Unfortunately, even several hours of decanting will not change that much. During this time, however, the fruit is able to show itself to its best advantage again. However, the desired harmony is not quite achieved. Very good length.

2010 Weißburgunder & Chardonnay Halbstück Spätlese trocken


Pfalz • Geschützte Ursprungsbezeichnung (g. U.)

Amtliche Prüfungsnummer 5041030 23 11 • 12.5 % alcohol


Tasted on 11 October 2013 by Werner Elflein

Intense greenish golden yellow with bright reflections and pronounced “tears” on the glass wall. Slightly buttery and ethereal, citrus-accentuated nose with delicate coconut notes and some caraway in the background. Impressively straightforward, not shying away from acidity. With 12.5 % alcohol, not a heavyweight, but enormously expressive. Uncompromisingly dry tasting, shows depth. Vegetable and tart finish. Excellent length.


2009 Silvaner Kabinett trocken

Amtliche Prüfungsnummer 5041030 7 10 • 12.5 % alcohol


Tasted on 3 July 2015 by Werner Elflein

I had already tasted this amazing Silvaner several times in the past. Why amazing? Thommy Hörner's wine from his first own vintage initially developed as I expected from a good, ambitious dry Kabinett. In the best case scenario, it has a certain ageing potential. Tertiary aromas are part of maturity. And a wine deserves them after several years in the bottle. However, it seems as if the Silvaner has not changed since I last tasted it, as if it remains in its former status quo. I even have the slight impression that it seems more youthful than ever before. The lemon-yellow hues, which have now replaced the earlier shades of gray, now predominate in the eye. The bouquet shows slight lactic hints, hardly any tertiary aromas, but instead still a pronounced fruity component, a clearly focused scent of sugar melon. Not too opulent at 12.5 % alcohol. Good presence on the palate, ripe but at the same time invigorating, well-integrated acidity. Tastes very dry. Excellently balanced. Only in the long finish do subtle notes of ripeness reveal themselves, without any astringency.
