    Winemaker Notes

    A velvety, full bodied bouquet and its sparkling ruby red color makes Affentaler a favorite among wine connoisseurs. Its quality, combined with the traditional hand painted Monkey bottle, makes it an attention getting package and guarantees to please both palate and eye. Spaetburgunder can be enjoyed on its own and makes an ideal companion for salmon, all types of meat and pasta dishes. Its robust character also lets it stand up to oriental and cajun food.

    Affentaler, Germany
    Already back in the year 1250 the Zisterzienser Nuns at the Lichtenthal Convent in the Ave Maria Valley (Avethal) started to cultivate "Spaetburgunder", the most noble of Germany's red wine grapes. Here - favored by the ideal climate of the Ortenau area and helped by the heat absorbing soil on the steep sunny vineyards - Spaetburgunder develops to its best. Still today, Spaetburgunder from the "Ave Valley" is harvested by hand and developed in large oak barrels.

    Red wine from Germany, really? Yes, really. The country’s world class German Rieslings may be its vinous claim to fame, but 40% of wine production is red. The star is Pinot Noir, known as spätburgunder, which is the third most-planted grape in Germany. In the regions of Baden and Ahr, in fact, this varietal is actually number one. German Pinot Noir offers precisely delineated characteristics of juicy red fruit, spice and earthy minerality that stay light but vivid. Look for versions from Weingut Dautel, August Kesseler and Claus Schneider.

    Another important German red wine is Blauer Portugieser, used for crisp, light-bodied wines. Dornfelder is also appreciated; it typically expresses a fun, grapey fruitiness that resembles Beaujolais. Smaller but still commercially significant plantings include Trollinger and Pinot Meunier. Even international varieties like Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot appear in some of the warmer regions.
