Doppelgängers Mixed Case Offer

We were hugely impressed by some of the contemporary wine-making in Germany on an exploratory trip earlier in the year. Jürgen Hofmann's elegant, poised and deftly-oaked 'Steinberg' Chardonnay, from a single-vineyard site in the heart of the Rheinhessen, would transport many a blind taster to the upper echelons of the Côte de Beaune, while Stefan Meyer's darkly-fruited, sensuous Syrah from the Pfalz is highly reminiscent of a young Côte-Rôtie or superior Saint-Joseph. Imitation is, indeed, the sincerest form of flattery as these two gems amply-illustrate. The only difficulty has been persuading both producers to part with commercial quantities, as they make less than 1,500 bottles of each and, understandably, enjoy an enthusiastic domestic following.

This six-bottle mixed case contains three bottles each of:

WHITE:
Rheinhessen: Jürgen Hofmann 'Steinberg' Chardonnay Trocken 2017

RED:
Pfalz: Stefan Meyer 'Rhodter Klosterpfad' Syrah 2017

This mixed case includes

3 x Rheinhessen: Jürgen Hofmann 'Steinberg' Chardonnay Trocken 2017£0.00

Talented winemaker Jürgen Hofmann makes just 100 cases of this delicious, barrel-fermented Chardonnay in each vintage. If you are fans of nervy white Burgundy without the hefty price-tag (and who isn’t?), this one's for you.

3 x Pfalz: Stefan Meyer 'Rhodter Klosterpfad' Syrah 2017£0.00

Impressive young winemaker, Stefan Meyer, only makes 1,500 bottles of this exclusive Syrah per year. Indeed, it is estimated that there are less than 100 hectares of Syrah planted in the whole of Germany, that's smaller than the hill of Hermitage.
