Wine is my hobby. Fine wine tasting notes and experiences.

2019 Weingut Salwey Oberrotweiler Kirchberg Spätburgunder GG

Tasting note

Quick note following our week-end trip to Weingut Salwey in Oberrotweil in the Kaiserstuhl region of Baden, Germany. The Kaiserstuhl is Germany’s warmest wine growing region. The soil there consists mainly of volcanic rock and lava, with a large part covered by loess and clay. More detailed notes will follow in the future when I can sit down and spend more time with each of the individual wines we bought.

2019 Kirchberg Spätburgunder GG very great, probably in a fruit phase right now, lots of cherry, slightly smoky and long, spicy finish. Matured in barrique, half new wood, half second or third fill. Easily over 10 years of ageing potential, it will develop well and become more complex. At the moment mainly hedonistic fruit :) Indication for points in the mid to higher 90s.

Drink from 2024 through 2034.
