Silvaner

Also known as: Johannisberger, Sylvaner

The Silvaner grape is an old variety that once was Germany's most significant grape. It is believed to have originated in Austria, and it was first introduced into Germany in 1665. It quickly grew in popularity in the Pfalz, Rheinhessen, and Franken regions. Today, about 13,131 acres (5,314 hectares) or 5% of the German wine regions are covered with Silvaner vines.

Silvaner wines are neutral and less acidic than Rieslings. Their color is usually very light, and their aroma are light and earthy, showing hints of basil, cotton, ferns, and elderberries. Silvaner wine from Franken goes well with seafood, and those from Rheinhessen and Pfalz go particulary well with asparagus. The sweet Auslese variety can be enjoyed as an appetizer or dessert.
