Sausages & Sour Cherries

If you like/love sausages..Germany is the place to live....all-sorts here...and all very good youth in England only had an odd sausage...not of very good quality...and to prove I love 'down to earth' food..throw a couple in the pan with lightly roasted potatoes..and I'll be your friend for life!

Umathum St.Laurent vom Stein 2001

Neusiedlersee, Burgenland, Austria
Medium red...'legs' to die for...intense aroma of what reminded me of lightly roasted meat..some dark plums...palate shows a sour red cherry flavour...herbs..tannin there but no way obtrusive...and the firm acidity keeping this fresh and lively..more finesse than power..Parker would hate it..this spends 18 months in 100% new oak..and is only released after 12 months in the bottle...
