2005 Red wine cuvée, “us de la meng”, Weingut Meyer-Näkel, Dernau, Ahr, Germany
Like a school outing
A deep ruby-red colour with aromas of dark berries and sweet plums. A dense, harmonious structure, pleasing, round and very drinkable, a nice balance of fruit and acidity with a flattering finish.
Unlike Spätburgunder, this “Rhine cuvée” made with red grapes from the Ahr is not stored in a barrique, which means it already has a wonderful maturity. Should definitely be decanted a few hours before serving!
