Pur Pur Taste

I am a fan of the Württenberger wines..with their mix of Spätburgunder and Lembacher...this reminds me in style of those wines..this one is 20 % Dunkelfelder & 80% Spätburgunder.

Rheingau, Germany
Lovely perfumed nose..delicate..spring flowers, blackcurrants...this spends 12 months in oak....intense juicyness..nougat..real nice balance here..tannins merely stroke the fruit...don't share this wine....it is easily emptied.....only kidding...I'd share a small glass.
Points 17.25

Have you ever had a 100% Dunkelfelder? Is there another name for this grape?

Barry said...

Joe..I have never had one...but have seen the odd bottle.
Grape is difficult to grow..so usually only a part..never a whole.

Where did you get this wine? I can't find it anywhere.

Barry said...

I bought it from a merchant in Nürnberg........
Outside of Germany...I doubt it has been exported....
