If the aromas spoke directly to the brain’s lust center the taste follows it up! Not for the tannin followers, this one rather appeals to acid freaks! The acidity takes you on a ride together with the ethereal feeling and delightful red fruit. Elegance in a glass simply!
I find myself liking the 2008′s Spätburgunder’s from German regions such as Ahr more than the rich 2007 style. Maybe it’s more drinkability at the moment or just the acid nut in me talking, I don’t know – but what I do know for certain is that if Pinot Noir is high up on your list then do whatever’s in your power to find some bottles from Kreuzberg!
