Proof again that I don’t drink enough (wines from Rheinhessen).
Becker-Landgraf, Grauer Burgunder trocken 2013, Rheinhessen
A healthy yellow straw colour with a slightly reddish tinge. Smoky on the nose with pear, yellow stone fruit, reddish fruit (strawberry) and roasted hints. All this translates like-for-like onto what is a succulent palate with an excellent vein of acidity. What I like about this wine the most is this refreshing characteristic acting as a counterpoint to some good concentration. Good fun and good for the soul.
And now for something completely different.
