Becker 2020 “Becker Family” Spätburgunder QbA dry

Regular price £18.99
"Juicy and with plenty of gumption. Slim tannins, expressive fruit, black-pepper finish. You could not possibly not like this. The kind of wine I could happily drink every day without tiring of it."
Tasted by Tamlyn Currin,
wine writer for Jancis Robinson

 

The VineyardsGrown on rare limestone soil with heavy topsoil
of loam and clay. The vines are 19 to 43 years old.

VinificationThe grapes were hand harvested and de-stemmed.
Before pressing, the grapes were macerated for 14 to 21
days to extract all the flavours and aromas from the grape-skins
into the juice.
The juice was fermented in big oak-barrels.
Afterwards left on the lees for almost 12 months after fermenting again in oak-barrels for 18 months to gain even more flavour and complexity.

Tasting notesPleasant, clear ruby red with dark reflections. In the nose scent of wild berries, tobacco, spices and forest floor. On the palate juicy, elegant with good length and structure.
