Editor note: Translate to English Noch unruhige, verschlossene, deutlich vegetabile sowie etwas nussig-holzige Nase mit herben gelbfruchtigen Aromen, deutlich Champignons und erdiger Mineralik. Reife, ziemlich saftige Frucht im Mund, nussige und holzige Würze, leicht kräuterige und wieder deutlich vegetabile Aromen, feine, lebendige Säure und etwas Gerbstoff, noch kaum entwickelt, kräftig und nachhaltig am Gaumen, süßlicher Schmelz, aber auch viel Griff, etwas Alkoholwärme, gewisse Tiefe, im Hintergrund Mineralik, Kandistöne, sehr guter, saftiger und würziger Abgang. Braucht Zeit.

The German growing area Franconia was formerly in the three areas Maindreieck, Mainviereck and Steigerwald structured with 23 major layers and 216 individual layers. In November 2011, a new regulation was adopted by the members of the Franconian Winegrowing Association. The three old areas are replaced by 12 much smaller ones. In the medium to long term, these will also replace the 23 major locations. The old areas once played a role in the predominant marketing of Franconian table wine, which they had lost for some time. Before this conversion, the following description applies to the area Maindreieck:

Main - river course with Maindreieck and Mainviereck

By far the largest Franconian area...
