"All Strawberries. A great gush of ripe, sweet, open friendly strawberries that comes brushed with the scent of early-morning woodland. really juicy. A wine that just makes you smile. He says a bit of struck flint and I agree. Mouth-watering. Gossamer tannins. Absolutely delicious." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 16.5 points
Bercher's Burkheimer Spätburgunder is a juicy, full-bodied ruby red. It has a spicy-sweet aroma of dark chocolate, orange, and figs combined with a smooth, filigree acidity on the palate.
Vinification: Mash fermentation, 15 months in barrique (French oak barrels).
Pairs perfectly with rabbit roulade with dried prunes or rack of lamb with a tapenade crust.

"Pure volcanic soil, two weeks' skin contact, big oak ageing.
Smoky bacon and cherry jam. Does the cancan in your mouth, high kicks and energy and delicious ripeness. Fruit with a candied edge is the whole message. Sinewy gymnast tannins and rounded muscle. This actually chuckles at you. Fresh, fun, mouth-watering, a wine to chill and drink in summer. Real pleasure wine"
