The Bercher Estate Vineyards have been family owned since 1756. Located between the Rhine River and the Black Forest, their best vineyards in Burkheim produce lush & mineralic wines owing mainly to the volcanic soil in the Kaiserstuhl region in southwest Baden. Their flavor profiles make them ideal accompaniments to a wide array of modern cuisine. Combining tradition with modern viticulture & cellar technology, all their wines go through extended lees aging resulting in vintages with wonderful ageing potential. Ruby red in color with scents of cherries & red berries, this wine is pleasantly balanced & dry with hearty & juicy flavors providing good length and smooth, well rounded tannins. Enjoy this wine with wild game birds such as duck, pheasant, or guinea fowl.
A light ruby red, aromas of sweet cherry, dried figs and slightly bitter chocolate on the nose. Mild, sweet on the palate. Good balance. Mash fermentation and stored in large wooden barrels. Food pairing, roasted duck breast with cinnamon cherries, Hungarian goulash.
