Straka - Ried Rosengarten 2018
Producer: Straka
Wine name: Ried Rosengarten
Classification: Eisenberg DAC Reserve
ABV: 13.5

This is a curious style, which at first seems a little overripe, with dark plum, hay and even a bit of farmyward on the nose. But it reveals itself to be very savoury and balsamic tinged on the palate, full of spices and textured with grippy tannins.
There is certainly interest and nuance here, but perhaps not elegance.
