2018 Huff Sylvaner trocken Rheinhessen
It's quite a challenge to make a perfect everyday wine, and the Huffs manage to do it year after year with their Sylvaner. Like for many Rheinhessen companies, Silvaner is real everyday wine. It's the wine that is being sent to restaurants and caterers in great quantities, but which is also loved by local wine experts who put a few boxes in the trunk. In the big cities, on the other hand, Silvaner still has an image problem. It's considered old-fashioned and boring. This wine proves all this misconseptions wron: Light, juicy, refreshing and wonderfully uncomplicated, Huff's Sylvaner is a real favourite of ours. Green apple, citrus and erbs. Great with asparagus, the German's favourit, it also goes well with a lot more. We often take it home when we haven't yet decided on what we're cooking for dinner. While drinking a glass of is not yet certain, when a glass of Huff's Sylvaner our dinner plans take on shape or we decide to just stick to a light snack.
The Huffs run a real family winery in Schwabsburg, a part of Nierstein on the famous Rote Hang in Rheinhessen. Today run by Christine and her New Zealand born husband Jeremy Bird-Huff, the winery has a long history. The family Huff has been making wine for more than three hundred years and Christine's parents still play a big role today. Both father Ekkehard, who still helps working in the vineyard and mother Doris, who works in sales. Christine and Jeremy's also have two children, plus the winery dog. The Huffs cultivate about 9 hectares of vineyards, including famous Niersteiner sites such as Orbel and Pettenthal and, above all, their magnificent primelocation at Schwabsburg-Rabenturm Castle. They produce as close to nature as possible, without using artificial fertilizers and herbicides. Sascha of Goldhahn und Sampson has had a long history with the Huffs, first visiting them in spring 2015, together with his family. And we have been fans and partners of this picture book winery ever since.
