The view is iconic of German vineyards: a wide amphitheater faces straight south to steeply planted slopes overlooking a charming little village and the curve of a river. But this isn’t in the Mosel, this is far to the south, in the forested part of Wurttemberg where Sylvaner is the white grape of choice, and Lemberger is the red. That tiny village is Rosswag, and that south-facing vineyard where tractors fear to tread is home to two producers, the local cooperative and Roterfaden, who have combined their efforts with Vom Boden Imports to produce this utterly charming wine, a shining beacon of the untapped potential in a generally ignored corner of the wine world. Lemberger is the German name for what we know better as Blaufrankisch, a central European favorite that offers spice and crunchy berry fruits in equal measure. The Roterfaden-Rosswag is no exception, offering up a stunning nose of boysenberry gelee, apricot, violets, and granite. The palate is fresh, fine-grained, and crisp with juicy acidity. Orange peel, strawberry, cranberry, and red cherry fruits are on full blast with that ever-present sense of granitic minerality. This is the sort of red that you can keep in the fridge, that needs no accompaniment but would go with nearly anything that isn’t too spicy, but we think the best way to drink this would be a pleasant, simple dish with sauerkraut, mustard, and bratwurst.
