Becker 2017 Schweigener Spätburgunder QbA dry

Regular price £27.30

"Hint of cranberry and crushed new-green bay leaf. Laurel spiciness and freshness. Lithe, muscled, savoury and peppery. This is thrumming with excitement. There is a certain amount of swagger, but is. comes with poise, control, wry finesse. Deeply spicy, deep-red ripe-berried fruit arching through the mouth thanks to vaulted acidity and tensely curved tannins." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson /

Vineyard: They are located around Schweigener on French and German side, with limestone soil and age of the vines between 28 and 53 years.

Winemaking: The grapes were carefully selected by hand destemmed and fermented separately from the mash. After two up to three weeks fermentation in open oak casks, they were gently juices. The further maturation took place for 16 months in small oak barrels called barrique. The wine is bottled without filtration in April 2021.

Wine: Pleasant, clear ruby red with dark reflections. In the nose flavours of blackberries, tobacco, plums, spices and vanilla notes. On the palate juicy, elegant with good length and structure.
