Bernhard Eifel 2009 Trittenheimer Apotheke Spätlese

June 8, 2011

I came across this producer when I and my wife went for dinner at the Eifel’s weinstube unaware the owner was actually a well reputed producer. The weinstube itself was actually pretty impressive in terms of both food and ambience and I strongly recommend a visit should you happen to be in Trittenheim. The wines are all of sound quality and excellent value for money, this one is a good example.

This shows a ripe and sweet aromatic profile with  minerals, honey and green apple taking the lead. On the palate this offers Spätlese weight, comes over round and well balanced by a very ripe acidic structure.  The zesty edge I am looking for is somewhat shadowed by the wine’s concentration, nevertheless a very enjoyable drink. Rebuy: yes.
