Friday tasting: Drop by 170 Fulham Rd on your way home & taste two German delights

by Ed H-B

This Friday we are heading off to the south west of Frankfurt to Rheinhessen in Germany and trying two wines from Braunewell:

2012 SP脛TBURGUNDER Weingut Braunewell

A聽delicious, light and bright Pinot Noir. It has plenty of juicy strawberry and red fruit character, and at only 12% ABV makes this a perfect little red for a long lazy lunch.


Grapes: Pinot Noir 聽Colour: Red
Origin: Germany, Rheinhessen
ABV: 12%

75cl bottles 聽拢11.95 聽 聽 | 聽 聽聽Case price* 拢 10.95


2014 RIESLING Trocken Weingut Braunewell聽

Bright and pure, it shows its class on the long finish where the flavours develop. More to come over the next year as it opens.


Grapes: Riesling 聽Colour: White
Origin: Germany, Rheinhessen
ABV: 12.5%

75cl bottles 聽拢11.95 聽 聽| 聽 聽Case price* 拢 10.95


See if you agree with Jancis Robinson, who has not only described Riesling as 鈥榯he world鈥檚 most mispronounced grape variety鈥 but also 鈥榦ne of my great wine heroes鈥. Can Germany produce great value Pinot Noir? Let your palate decide!

*We offer a free nationwide delivery service on all orders over 拢100 and a 鈥榗ase price discount鈥 on any 12 bottles (or 9 litre equivalent).
