Allendorf 2019 Quercus Spätburgunder QbA dry Red Wine

Allendorf 2019 Quercus Spätburgunder QbA dry

Regular price £22.99

A Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) with intense aromas of blackberry, vanilla and liquorice. This full-bodied red has fine tannins and a forceful finish, making it a well-balanced pleasure to drink.

Quercus is the botanical term for oak, and this red wine expresses the character of its barrique (oak barrel) ageing. After a long fermentation on the skins and stems, the wine was matured in barrels - 30% of which are made of new wood, giving the wine fullness. After being matured in these barrels for 24 months, it develops into a powerful wine.

The grapes for this wine were grown at high altitude, on the slopes of the Taunus. The vines stand on sandy loess soil. Due to the east-west orientation, which is untypical for the Rheingau, the vineyards are bathed in sunshine from the hot midday hours into the evening, giving the vines the additional maturity and power.

Food recommendation: The perfect companion for steak, burger or a roaring fire.
