Luckert 2016 Sulzfelder Frühburgunder TrockenRegular price £34.95
Luckert is one of the best estates in the Franken region, and is run by brothers Ulrich and Wolfgang with their families. Certified organic since 2009, the property includes a vineyard of exceptionally old Sylvaner vines planted in the 1870s. The Frühburgunder (a mutation of Pinot Noir) is more recent, being planted in the 1990s. The wine is fermented with wild yeasts in tank and raised in cask, before being bottled unfiltered. It is a Pinot Noir-like wine, with a beguiling combination of fresh fruit and some farmyard complexity that could easily be mistaken for very good Burgundy.
