Juicy stuff! Exciting twosome of flirty black currant and sensual red berry. Spätburgunder and Montepulciano from Hannes Bergdoll, Pfalz (DE) and Cantina Orsogna, Abruzzo (IT).
Batch of 3680 bottles
Pfalz checks all the boxes! It’s not just Germany’s second biggest wine region but also part of Germany’s wine route (the Weinstrasse). Famous for its Riesling grapes but experimental as we are - we went for Spätburgunder grapes from this region.
And Abruzzo? Believe us: this green wine oasis is worth Googling (or the vacation).
While the French know it as Pinot Noir, in Germany this grape goes by the name Spätburgunder. And we did what no other winemaker (in the old wine world) would do: we blended it with the Italian Montepulciano.
What’s so experimental about it?
This wine was subject of our first 'country blend'. 60% of German grapes are complemented by 40% of Italian grapes. The surprising crisp and freshness of the Spätburgunder is brilliantly complimented with the full bodied Montepulciano. A match made in heaven that no wine maker before ever thought about.
The story behind the bottle
It takes two to tango! No name could be more spot on then this one. The forbidden dance between two passionate parties.
Light meat, vegetables.
