2021 Bettina Schumann Badisch Rotgold

Tasting note

The colour is a glowing, transparent orange pink. Clean nose, nice primary fruit characteristics. Strawberries, water melon, blood orange, red apples. There’s also a layer of sweet candy. On the palate, comes across as slightly off-dry with low tannings and medium alcohol. Somewhat warm feeling, riper than in the bouquet. Acidity is low. This is easy drinking, not much complexity. It would drink even better if the alcohol wasn’t slightly out of balance. Cuvée of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Pinot Gris.

Drink from 2023 through 2024.

Ratings

Flawed?no
DM:
3Wines with a DM3 to DM4 rating are average on a fine wine level. They have been produced well, they have no apparent flaws or big imbalances that would put me off. On the other hand, they lack features that would make them stand out in a more positive way, i.e. they might lack intensity or a long finish.
/ 20 ("passable")
Stars:
2Wines with a rating of 2 stars are well-made and of average quality relative to their peer group. Perfectly enjoyable and certainly not disappointing.
