'Monkeys on My Back (nope, we don’t know either) is a blend of Pinot Noir and Dornfelder made by one of the Mosel’s ‘young guns’, Philipp Kettern, and although it’s dark and glossy and shiny, with cherry, raspberry and orange flavours to the fore, there’s something reminiscent of mature Syrah that comes through on the nose and palate with notes of blueberry jam, black pepper and smoky bacon fat. It spent two years in barrel, which has smoothed the wine’s textured into a velvety richness, but there’s a sleek quality that runs through it giving the wine a lovely sheen in the mouth, so it tastes fresh and vibrant despite its age. A great value wine that proves that if you pay peanuts you get monkeys. 11.5% alc. Drink now – 2024
