At 26, Matthias Runkel has a surprising number of vintages under his belt. The son of a winemaker, he added to his existing knowledge by studying oenology and has now taken over the winemaking at the family winery. Matthias spends most of his time in the vineyard. The result of this careful viticultural work is wines with character and good varietal typicity. (Not always easy to find as, even in Germany, the “international” varietals are making their presence felt). His pure, mineral style of Grauer Burgunder is a joy to drink while his leafy, savoury Spätburgunder is a fabulous alternative to Burgundy on any list.
Delicate red berry fruit with a slightly savoury edge, crunchy acidity with soft silky tannins.
