|I had this bottle.|
Schnaitmann Lemberger Württemberg 2008
|Others had this one.|
Unfortunately, it did not taste anything like durian. Might be a fortunate thing because that would be awfully weird. High in tannins, it is no wonder there is the bitterness to the smell. The tannins are a little overpowering, masking the plums, berry jam sweetness it has, not to mention the spice. Pity.
I am bias but because of the smell, this wine is just out of this world.
Now about the bottle. I searched everywhere online and could not find anyone with the same bottle as mine. It is not even on the website of the Wine Store I bought it from! This is not the first time that it has happened. I wonder who actually controls the bottling? I went to their Website but hmm I cannot read German. Time to investigate!
