For over 230 years P.J. Valckenberg has discovered extraordinary German Estates
and act as an ambassador of their wines. The Valckenberg Varietals represent
authentic and typical german wines.
In Germany's largest wine-growing region, too, the lack of precipitation was one
of the biggest challenges this year. The rain was distributed very differently
across the region, but there was clearly too little everywhere - and that for the
third year in a row. However, the weather also brought good sides. The cherry
vinegar fly, which has been feared for several years, did not cause any problems
in 2020. In terms of quality, 2020 joins the ranks of the solid previous vintages.
Due to the healthy grape condition, the young wines show a clear aroma and
sufficient acidity values despite the high temperatures in late summer.
