Vernatsch

Weingut Gold

Alte Reben Trocken Trollinger 2019

Fresh & sappy with underripe cherry, cranberry and whiff of moss and a pinch of fresh mint. A touch of plum, too.
On the palate this is light yet with nice juicy tannins giving a frame and the cranberry acidity filling it. Fresh, sappy and so drinkable.
There’s a touch of fatty, bright character, so typical German and so unnecessary.
But at 7€ this is absolutely brilliant, even if the top Vernatsch from Südtirol (at 30€+!) are a nudge purer and a touch more mineral.

Alte Reben Südtiroler Vernatsch 2018

Very smooth and berry forward. Smells like tea and is delightful as a wine with pasta or seafood. Also ate with some salads and was a good pairing. — 9 months ago

Upupa Rot Rosslauf Red Blend 2016

A slightly more modern yet highly authentic interpretation of Vernatsch. Cool & fresh with ripe plums, with some plum jam, a bit of damp earth & undergrowth, some graphite.
Nicely drawn, this is featherlight yet focused & precise, with pure, juicy fruit, good acidity and present tannins - quite light yet with grip. The aging in (large wood) fills the mid palate nicely. This is why I love Vernatsch!
Old vines, 5% Pinot noir, organic.

Tenutæ Lageder Römigberg Alto Adige Kalterersee Classico 2017

This is what Vernatsch is all about!
Light (11.5% alc) and crystal clean yet quite expressive with cherries and plumes and cranberries. There’s also a whiff of lemon peel and a stony, herby undertone.
Crisp & light on the palate and very, very juicy with a pinch of herby spice and a mineral backbone. Despite all it’s lightness this has loads of precision, character & personality. Love it!!

Enderle & Moll

Spätburgunder Rosé 2018

Closer to a Valpolicella Classico or Vernatsch than your typical Provence rosé.
Dark(er) in colour and in the nose with sweet strawberry & rhubarb, ripe watermelon and succulent blood-orange, on a bed of rocky, herby minerality. So sappy and succulent, with surprising weight and a touch of tannin but with such a flow - this is a delight.
E&M rocks! (as always)
