Weingut Knipser – 17/02/2012

Blauer Spatburgunder 2009
Quite intense dark fruit, and is more like a cabernet franc than a pinot noir.

Kalkmergel Spatburgunder 2009
Very aromatic, having a red berry and slight leather component, and was quite dense yet supple on the palate finishing somewhat earthy like the Blauer Spatburgunder of the same vintage.

Kirscharten Grosses Gewachs Spatburgunder 2007
Very intense yet subtle, combining forest fruits and black cherry with velvety tannins and persistent length.

Kirscharten Grosses Gewachs Spatburgunder 2008
Much tighter in the tannins and brighter on the nose, showing more minerality and freshness.

Burgweg Grosses Gewachs Spatburgunder 2008
Much softer earthier palate with broader tannins, red fruit freshness and less acid concentration.

The winery also makes wines from other red varieties such as syrah and Bordeaux grapes, but the wines are less consistent and better in warm vintages.

Laumersheimer Kapellenberg Trockenbeerenauslese 2003
Deemed the best dessert wine in the world by Decanter Magazine. It was a rich bronze colour, had a very subtle quiet nose, and on the palate combined walnuts, cornbread, treacle and dried muscatels.
