We are rating in five categories in blind rating by neutral testers, who us our rating system:

  • category 1: lighter dry wines and sparkling wines with less than 9 g/l residual sugar and up to 12% alcohol. When evaluating the bouquet, we weight here freshness and liveliness more heavily and the drinking pleasure on the tongue. Because we are convinced that this is particularly sought after with lighter wines.
  • category 2: stronger, dry wines and sparkling wines with less than 9 g/l residual sugar and more than 12% alcohol. Here we give more weight to the personality of the wine, the individual and terroir notes as well as the potential for good development in the future, characteristics that are expected of these products.
  • category 3: half dry and sweeter wines and sparkling wines, each with over 9 g/l of sugar. Here we weight the fruitiness more heavily as well as the probable future, because fruit is primarily expected from a sweeter wine.
  • category 4: noble sweet wines such as Beerenauslese, Trockenbeerenauslese or ice wines. Here, of course, we weight the fruit even more, especially tropical fruit notes.
  • category 5: natural and orange wines. Here we give more weight to the distinctiveness, the individual and substantial.
