    With the potential to produce some of the finest white wines in the world, Germany is one of the world’s most misunderstood winegrowing countries. Many wine consumers of a certain age will recall with amusement and a twinge of horror the sugar-laden Liebfraumilch of their formative drinking years, and surely these bulk-produced, saccharine bottles can still be found. But today Germany is building its reputation upon fine wines at all points of the spectrum from sweet to dry, the best of which can age for many decades. The world’s northernmost region for quality wine production, Germany faces some unique viticultural challenges due to its extreme marginal climate. Fortunately for the lover of German wine, because these wines are still a bit under the radar, they tend to remain surprisingly affordable—for now.

    Germany is best known for white wines, particularly Riesling, which is cold-hardy enough to survive very chilly winters, and has enough natural acidity to create balanced wines even at the highest levels of residual sugar. These are classified by ripeness, and can be picked early for dry wines with searing acidity, or as late as January following the harvest for lusciously sweet ice wines. Other important white varieties include fairly neutral workhorse Müller-Thurgau as well as Grauburguner (Pinot Gris) and Weissburguner ([Pinot Blanc]). Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) grown in warmer pockets of the country is, at its best, elegant and structured enough to rival red Burgundy.
