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! http://www.weingut-mugler.de/

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!
