Spätburgunder trocken Pfalz

After all this Swedish specialities it was time to 'go home':

2007 Spätburgunder trocken, Pfalz
Weingut Mugler VdP
ca 8,50 € (ex winery)
Light red colour, nose with nice earthy tones, some spices and red fruit underlying. Some alcohol is detectable. On palate: cherry and redcurrent, some spicyness, juicy. Good acidity. Tannins are very subtile, very velvety, almost not there. A medium-bodied wine. Elegant. Drink now, keep for a couple of years. 13,5 % abv.
We have always bought our wines from this winery when still living in Germany. Today, when going home for a visit, we will go by and buy some more bottles. Susanne & Harald are nice and fun people, took over from her dad and run this in the xxth generation. Very nice rooms can be rented here too!

If you only want bold, heavy wines with lots and astringent tannins, this is not your wine. But if you like to have a perfect partner to the right food - try it!

We had it with very good (organic) entrecôte (done the pfälzisch-way, with roasted onions), rosmary fried potatoes and a fine wintersalad with a dark Cleopatra vinaigrette.
Life is good!
