Collective Z, ‘Bernvalley’, 2019, Pfälzer Landwein

20210410_203413This is a single-varietal wine made from old Portugieser vines situated in the secluded Berntal nature reserve (hence the English play on words).

Deep purple appearance. Lush if still little diffuse on the nose, with blueberry, black olive and a hint of dark chocolate. Well-integrated, fresh acidity and fine-grained but still quite pronounced tannins. Textured mouthfeel packed within a concentrated medium to full body, with cedar, soy sauce and a dash of Maggi. Savoury, complex and long, with a long life ahead of it.
