Description

Named after the bunker number on the Canadian airbase where Hans-Bert and Silke made their first wines. The smallest bunches from the oldest vines in their Nordweil vineyard, planted in 1971, were harvested a little earlier and vinified separately, giving a single barrique. Vibrant aromas of blueberry, tarragon and a touch of smoke are joined on the palate by intense cherry flavours; there is great density and freshness, and a fine mineral undercurrent, all of which make the 100% new oak fade into the background where it belongs.
