Joachim Heger Spatburgunder Q 2005
Joachim Heger Spatburgunder Q (Baden) doesn’t leap to mind as a wine for a dreary Good Friday in SW London for it really isn’t a wine for that occasion but this was “Foreign Friday” and I’d just taken delivery of this interesting Spatburgunder!
This really is a wine for food suited perfectly to chinese foods like Peking Duck or Sweet and Sour Pork but not to drink on its own as its far too acidic and lacking in character on the palate.
Joachim Heger Spatburgunder Q 2005 – PASS – £11
Light garnet red colour with a beautifully perfumed nose of roses, cinnamon, cherry stones and cranberries. On the palate the wine is light bodied with very high acidity, no real fruit but is soft and easy drinking, lack complexity. 80 Points
80 Points is really low for a wine of this price but this is a food wine, with food, this wine could score considerably higher.
Where can I buy this Wine?

Europeans – Chile Wein – €8
