Baden is Germany’s most southerly and warmest wine region, a narrow strip nestled between the Black Forest and the Rhine River. Indigenous vines have existed since the end of the Ice Age, and wine-making began to spread throughout the region starting in the 2nd century. From there, little is known about the specifics of who was making it and in what styles, since the area was ruled by various outside counts after the Roman era into the 12th century, when the territory was officially declared. By the 16th century, the wines from the “Upper Rhine” were exported to other parts of Europe, and were well known for their powerful structure and quality.
The soil types vary throughout the region, with areas of clay, granite, limestone, keuper, sand, glacial sediment, and volcanic ash (mostly in the Kaiserstuhl subregion). The starring grape is the red Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), which fulfills some of its best ripening potential and tannic structure here. The most common Read more »

  • Hello everybody!recently I have tasted various ( differnt countries, grapes and ... on wine of Graf Adelmann, Baden, Germany) late harvest whites in which I have discerned one common taste note - specific horseradish/nutmeg like spicyness. Today I have found it even in an Eiswein ( cheap one, maybe that's why it is so similar to Auslese)  which... Read More

  • Colonial Estate Gsm John Speke Barossa Barossa Valley Australia South Australia 2005


    Powerful yet elegant. Abundant plum, raspberry and licorice offset by black pepper and spice. It also has nice earthy quality, maybe leather. Read More

  • Weingut Hirsch Grüner Veltliner 2006


    Big huge nose of melon and citrus. Surprisingly fragrant white wine! Wonderfully refreshing lime and herb with the melon tones and served cold, a perfect back porch summer wine. Crisp and lingers nicely.- Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/10/10 Read More

  • J.J. Prüm Kabinett Bernkasteler 2007


    Tried this again, different tasting, deduced a nose of rubber, hint of white flowers, and an aged poultry smell. Similar taste plus a rush of tropical fruit (guava, passionfruit) and a hint of citrus, Mild acid and medium to light body. Read More

  • Ehrenstetter Sauvignon Blanc Baden Trocken Weinkeller Ehrenkirchen 2007


    I am familiar with the 2006 Sauvignon Blanc and would put in the category of a fine New Zealand SB. Like most people, when I originally think of wines I think of sugary rieslings. I was greatly surprised by the craftsmanship of this wine. It wasn't overly sugary, it wasn't overly dry, and it wasn't overly earthy. Only wish I could find a bottle ... Read More

  • Spätburgunder Reserve Trocken Qba Holger Koch 2007


    This was not like any Pinot Noir I have ever had. Retaining all the complexity of this difficult grape, it was so light as to almost resemble a Rosé in colour and weight. For a wine industry whose strength is floral and fruity Rieslings, this red was a beautiful showcase of the power a light wine can have in impacting the palate. Read More

  • Von Buhl Riesling Spatlese Trocken 2006


    Great Riesling for a very good price. This one goes well with stronger flavored fish and lighter meats. It is dry (less than 9 g/L = 0.9% residual sugar). This is less than most Chardonnays but based on the fruit and extract, this wine tastes full and satisfying. Very nice minerality, too. Read More

  • Affentaler Spatburgunder Rotwein NV


    I bought this bottle because of the monkey on the bottle (a private couple joke about "Monkey Love";) I opened it the other night to have with a filet and could not believe how wonderfully it danced in my mouth. I agree that it stands up as a glass to sip . I am off to order a case and to try the Reisling which of course should shine, being Ge... Read More
