The Schweigen Sonnenberg Sankt Paul Spätburgunder GG from Friedrich Becker in the Palatinate shows a bright, light red color in the swirled glass. With a bit of sideways exposure, the red wine glass reveals a charming garnet-red hue at the rims. If you give it some air by swirling, you can perceive a perfect balance in this red wine, as it does not stand out on the walls of the glass in a watery, syrupy or liqueur-like way. In the glass, this red wine from Friedrich Becker offers aromas of black cherries, mulberries, blueberries, plums and blackberries, complemented by brittle, lovage and firewood. The Friedrich Becker Schweigen Sonnenberg Sankt Paul Spätburgunder GG presents itself pleasantly dry to the wine enthusiast. This red wine never appears coarse or meager, as one might expect from a wine in the icon wine segment. In the finish, this good storable red from the wine-growing region of Palatinate finally inspires with considerable length. Once again, hints of black currant and blueberry show through.
