Julia Bertram 2016 Dernauer Spätburgunder
This is from Julia’s home village and the Dernauer sites of Pfarrwingert (greywacke), Burggarten (weathered slate and gravel) and Hardtberg (greywacke). After cold maceration up to a week, it was spontaneously fermented in large, German oak, that comes from near Klingenberg, Julia’s beau’s VDP estate in Churfranken. It has more structure than its Ahrweiler sister, showing sour cherry, sweet spice, incense and slight cedar aroma. The palate has polish, sweet tannin and finesse. It is a gorgeous example of pinot noir.
