Weingut Salwey – 28/02/2012

2010 Weisburgunder wines
All quite rich and ripe in their pear and melon characteristics, with some delicate texture from barrel and lees contact.

2010 Grauburgunders
A subtle savoury creaminess which reminded me of freshly boiled pasta from the colander.

2010 Henkenberg Grosses Gewachs wines
Had better balanced and integration but will continue to improve in the bottle.

Reserve Spatburgunder Weissherbst 2010
An interesting barrel fermented rosé style wine which had too much going on for a rosé made from pinot noir.

Spatburgunder wines
2009 wines had great combinations of bright red fruits and savoury earthiness, good mid-palate structure and a clean long finish, whereas the 2010 wines were much deeper and tighter in the tannins and will take longer to open up.
