The Strange World Of Wine

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'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
Co-Operative Kappelrodeck-Waldulm

Baden, Germany
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.

Points 16.5

A Gold Medal winner...and an excellent label.
