2015 Kreuznacher Chardonnay is Price-Performance ChampionWe are very excited that the SJ Montigny 2015 Kreuznacher Chardonnay received 92 points in the most recent tasting by Wein.pur Magazine! Our wine earned the title “Excellent” along with a place on the pedestal and price-performance champion.

In Germany, Chardonnay only plays an underpart. However, in recent years, the grape variety has given us wines that have earned a note of exclamation….so begins the Wein.pur article accompanying this tasting. 50 Chardonnays were tested and rated. Our Chardonnay fared “Excellent”. It stands out with its glistening gold-yellow color and is distinguished by a balanced acidity. Our Chardonnay makes its mark with elegance and depth that finishes in an intense finale.

Distinguished Rieslings

The Austrian wine culture and lifestyle magazine Wein.pur rated three of our Rieslings from the 2015 vintage. We’re proud to report that that these wines were awarded 87 and 92 points!

Our 2015 Kreuznacher Koetenpfuhl Riesling, fine and elegant with aromas of sandalwood, orange blossom, and fresh herbs, scored 92 points. Also honored was our 2015 Kreuznacher Steinberg Riesling. The jury was swayed by its long, tart finish and complex bouquet. The 2015 Kreuznacher Riesling, with its charming interchanges between salty and sweet, also received 87 points.

Great results! We hope, you’ve found the perfect Montigny wine for the holidays. We’re happy to answer any questions surrounding our portfolio. Just ask!

2016_Gold-PIWIThis week we received the results of the international PIWI Wine Prize 2016. 300 wines from 14 countries were tasted, among them our SO MOOKT WI DAT white. With a score of 93 PAR-Points it received GOLD.

Wines made from fungus resistant grape varieties are not only sustainable, since they allow the winegrower to greatly reduce pesticide use, but they also deliver great wines with fascinating aromas. These varieties are a perfect match for our vineyards in Schleswig-Holstein (northern Germany). We are proud of the results!
