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.
