Strange how things happen in the wine world. After recent visits to our favourite hideaway in Kappelrodeck-Waldulm.. here or here ...we had recommended it to friends..who all loved it. Volker had purchased some wine from the local Co-operative (photo right)..taken it back home and had given Robert, who has a wine shop, some to try.. Robert supplies wine to a local Restaurant. So far so good?..OK.. The owners of the restaurant have a new venture 'Restaurant Jägerhof'..and I was invited with my wife to the opening night. Robert had done the wine list which included..yes..you've guessed it.. some wines from Baden. The simple Spätburgunder is listed.. but the one I drank was the 'Alter Reben' (old vines)
Waldulm Pfarrberg Spätburgunder
Alte Reben Spätlese trocken 2005
Medium deep in colour; aromas of sweet cherries and blackberries, some oak; cherries again on first taste..with a concentration (old vines)..velvety mouthful..and a good finish.
A pleasure now but will be around for a few years.
A Gold Medal winner...and an excellent label.
