Affentaler Spatburgunder Rotwein'03, "Monkey" Red Wine, Baden, Germany

A nice wine for casual meal!

Technical Data:100% Pinot Noir, Spatburgunder is the German name for Pinot Noir. Affentaler is named for the "Monkey Valley" that it's grown in. From Germany's Baden growing region.

Description:Light and soft summer wine. Pale red color almost pink. Delicious aromas of cherries and vanilla. A little fizzy at the beginning of the palate. Flavors of raspberry, strawberry and herbs. The finish, which is quite smooth due to the wine's low alcohol content (12 %), carries flavors pine and a touch of bitterness, though not in an bad way.

Food Pairing & Service:Perfect with roasted pork, bratwurst, picnics, or as a cocktail. Quite unusual for a red wine, serves this one well-chilled!


Suggested Retail Price:$12.49


  1. I have an empty '82 bottle of this wine and would like to know if this bottle is of any value.Thank you,Tammy Godfrey

  2. Tammy,

    the only value to this bottle is the one you give to it, as far as I know, it has no other value whatsoever as this wine is quite distributed all around and the bottles do not have a number written on the glass. Thanks for your question!
