Climate change is affecting wine growers across the world but nowhere more so than Germany, argues JANCIS ROBINSON MW. All that extra sunshine has been translated into extra stuffing in the trocken Rieslings that tasted so unappealingly meagre a decade or two ago.' Another noticeable change, she says, is the new wave of reds: Germany is now well and truly a red wine-producing country even if the most usual grape is Pinot Noir, or Sptburgunder.' According to Robinson, 2005 was as good to Germany as it was to France, and her top producers include Dr Crusius, Fritz Haag, Keller and Stefan Winter.
