I actually wanted to drink ›my second Trollinger‹ with Aram. But Aram has a lot to do, family and everything. And me? Me, too! So.
Jochen Beurer equips some of his wines with a screw cap. I have nothing against screw caps, but they are made of aluminum. And aluminium is bad, isn’t it? It is. But compared to (natural) cork? I shall investigate! The wine has a very nice, dark raspberry colour and, after ten minutes in the glass, it smells like it as well. At least I think so. I hand the glass over to Feli who has just been passing by my office. »Raspberry? No. Darker! Blackberry!«. Feli takes a sip. I protest that I haven’t tried it myself yet! »Is that that Trollinger from the winemaker you’re going to visit with your father? Absolutely delicious! Trollinger – delicious if you make it well!« Later I write down: »Slender, lively, lemony, brilliant, like a white from the Loire. Only 11%! Fruit not too pronounced. Have to let Thomas try it!«
