Well, the Steingrüble, a half bottle, was definitely corked. And it was also definitely corked (ha ha). I guess that means that, unlike the Heugumber, it is no longer entry level, but single vineyard mid-range. Which makes sense to me: what I could smell behind the cork was very promising. I never understand the screwcap = entry level equation anyway. Doesn't it imply the very notion that we need to overcome, namely that cork is the more "valuable" closure?
I also need to mention that Ziereisens, wonderful people that they are, gift-packed the Steingrüble into my parcel for me to try, so I don't want this to reflect negatively on them.
