2011 Ellwanger Spätburgunder

This lovely bottle is from the Ellwanger winery that is located in the Weinstadt area of Stuttgart, Germany. We were lucky enough to visit the winery during a visit to Stuttgart last weekend, where we chose a few bottles of wine specific to the particular region.

This Spätburgunder (literally translated to mean 'Late Burgundy), is a classic German-style, medium-bodied with moderate tannins and medium acidity. A light floral bouquet on the nose, it has an earthy, mineral quality, with a hint of spice, complexity and elegance. A real gem at 12 euros a bottle.

We're pairing this with a roasted-vegetable quiche for dinner. I think the earthy, mineral tones will work well with the earthy, herbaceous flavors of the vegetables. What's on your table tonight?
