Spätburgunder Auslese Trocken 2003

£32.99

A very ripe, persistent Pinot Noir with red and black berry aromas and flavours, with fine and contrasting spicy, roast/smoky notes. It’s powerful but disciplined and, although drinking very nicely already, has good aging potential also.

Wilhelm Zähringer

Wilhelm was originally a wholesaler of organic and environmental products but he took over the family vineyard with his wife Marlies in 1986. The estate is close to the Black Forest and dates from 1844. Baden is the sunniest part of Germany, its vineyards influenced by the warm Mediterranean air brought north up the Rhône valley. These are lovely, gently crafted wines which will soon carry biodynamic certification.
Vineyard size 10 hectares. Organic since 1987.

Description

Spätburgunder Auslese Trocken 2003, Zähringer

Only produced in years when the Baden sun is strong (and autumnal) enough, this can give most of the more obvious ‘big reds’ on our list a run for their money. The grapes were picked at the end of September, vinified and fermented traditionally for about 10 days and then put straight into new barriques. It’s a very ripe, persistent Pinot Noir with red and black berry aromas and flavours, with fine and contrasting spicy, roast/smoky notes. It’s powerful but disciplined and, although drinking very nicely already, has good aging potential also.
