Julia Bertram 2017 Spätburgunder "Handwerk"
The 2015 Handwerk sold out before we could get it on the website. Like the 2015 & 2016, this 2017 is sourced from younger vines all over the Ahr Valley, from Mayschloss to Ahrweiler. Partial stem inclusion with a seven-day maceration until spontaneous fermentation started, then pressed and aged in neutral French oak from Meyer-Näkel. Let’s call this spätburgunder a gateburgunder—a gateway drug to the rest of Julia’s range. It’s a bowl of cherries with a leafy edge and a kiss of cinnamon spice. It’s more structured than the 2015, a bit less overt, but every bit delicious and succulent.
