In Germany’s Franken region, Silvaner is revered above that of Riesling, although the opposite can be said throughout the rest of the country. In this unique region, where Silvaner has been cultivated since 1659, it produces full-bodied, long-lived and very nuanced examples compared to the neutral, simple and uninspiring wines from elsewhere in the world such as Alsace and Switzerland, for example.
The Furst family specialise in Silvaner and Pinot Noir and has been making wine in this part of the world since 1638. With such a deep knowledge of grape growing and winemaking, Sebastian Furst, the latest generation, has a wealth of experience to draw from. Alongside this, he recently returned from studying in Nuits St Georges to now pick up the baton of producing top quality Franken wines.
This early ripening white is similar in profile to fatter styles of Riesling, Pinot Blanc, fresh styles of Chablis and can resemble cool climate examples of Grenache Blanc. Furst have produced a mineral-driven style of Silvaner with good body, depth, complexity, citrus fruits, melon and delicate herbal notes in the background.
