The Deep South of Germany

Situated way down south..almost in Switzerland..is the property of Ziereisen. Still classed as Baden though... Hanspeter Ziereisen hit the headlines with a Spätburgunder Rhini 2002 (one still left in my cellar). It won a prize....and he's gone on from there. Never afraid to experiment...there is a Syrah, a Chardonnay (soon to be tried)..Weiss & Grau-Burgunder, Gutedel, even a mix of Spätburgunder & Syrah..you get the picture? His Spätburgunder are given names like the aforementioned Rhini..as well as Schulen..and this one 'Tschuppen'.





Ziereisen Spätburgunder 'Tschuppen' 2006
Baden, Germany
Pale colour with watery rim..this is unfiltered......sour cherry aroma...and a lively acidity....it sounds light & fluffy..but there is body here..it spends 12 months in used oak....gobs of ripe sweet fruit...this is a € 12,-- wine....and is amazing value.... a terroir wine..and it will develop....

Points 16.25
