The Butcher from the Pfalz

Uli Metzger took over the reins at this property in 2010 from his father and has invested intensively....not only in vats and barrels...but in the marketing. Of course...with a name like Metzger (Butcher) the oportunities were there. His reds are worth searching for...with names 'Prago', 'Arthos' and 'Melandor' added to the labels.
I was shopping in my new favourite Supermarket...and they have a massive wine selection. Not that I ever buy from large chains...but this Edeka Scheck-In has a really good as I filled my trolley with plenty of food goodies...I also slipped in this white.

Metzger St. Stephan Chardonnay Reserve 2018

Light yellow in colour...gentle aromas of lime and lemon...yellow apples...which crossed over to the palate. Medium acidity and trace of oak. Well balanced...and good value at Euros 20,—

Points 15
