Ratzenberger Bacharacher Wolfshöhle Spätburgunder Grosses Gewächs 2017 75 CL

Mittelrhein – Germany

The raw material for this new model from Ratzenberger comes from the Bacharacher Wolfshöhle, which is located in the middle of the long, south-facing field that runs from Bacharach on the Rhine and up to Steeg in the side valley that faces almost perpendicular to the course of the river towards the Hunsrück massif. Here, the soil is very nutrient-poor with deep-seated, decomposed shale. This small cuvée is sourced from the field’s oldest Pinot vines, where pruning early in the season has reduced the harvest to promote concentration in the grapes, and consequently, the wine.

This is intensely fruity and dense pinot fruit with youthful structure and aromas of elderberry, cranberry, cherry and a distinct geranium-herb rustic edge (from old German clones).
The wine still appears very youthful and unredeemed, but give it, if necessary, a good handful of years along.

If you drink it young, try a decanter and find the spacious burgundy glasses.

Ratzenberger Bacharacher Wolfshöhle Spätburgunder Grosses Gewächs will go well with simmered dishes, especially the Provençal daube or boeuf bourguignon

Best served at room temperature, at approx. 15-16°.
