2016 Knipser Cuvée Gaudenz trocken Pfalz
The Cuvée Gaudenz by Knipser points to their family origin, South Tyrolean town of the same name. The wine is based on the classic Bordelaise grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Depending on the vintage, there is also a portion of Dornfelder or Lemberger in it. We like to describe it as a Cabernet cuvée with a touch of the North Palatinate. The Cuvée Gaudenz is a bit more fruity and therefore more accessible than many Médoc wines and it's much more similar to a South Tyrolean Cabernet. Always perfectly matured in large wooden barrels and the bottle, the Gaudenz is very harmonious and balanced. Cassis, red berries, ripe cherries, black pepper, and some cloves. Rather medium-bodied, very juicy, and not too bitter.
The Knipsers from Laumersheim in Northern Palatinate operate one of the most renowned German wineries. Some of their great wines are icons of German viticulture, but also their base wines are of a quality that's rarely found. Their wines are always ready to drink when they go on sale, which is really nice. The reason for this is that the wines have been given as much time in the cellar as they needed. This way, even a 'Gutswein' can have matured for a few years until it's harmonious enough to leave the winery. The core quality of the Knipsers, however, is that they master every discipline: from fresh white wine to 'Große Gewächse' (grand crus) to fine sweet wines, from rosé to Spätburgunder to Syrah – the Knipsers do them all, and do them all well!
