Young Peter Leipold has quickly established himself as a rising star not only in Franconia, but in all of German wine. As his old mentor, Klaus-Peter Keller says, "he has the touch". The extraordinary 2021 vintage in Germany allowed for the rare Kabinett Trocken in many regions, and Franconia was no different, as Leipold's Silvaner- grown in Muschelkalk (fossilized chalk limestone)- ably demonstrates. It's precise, filigreed, almost weightless...while simultaneously razor-sharp and bursting with tension and energy. Vegan.
