I'm a sucker for odd bottle shapes and this one was particularly cool (it was the RedDot design award winner in 2009).

Although the winery/company headquarters are based in Germany, this particular wine originated from France apparently.

It's a dark red wine, but quite free flowing and light.

On the nose, some earthiness and herbaceousness (not a word it seems but I like it), this wine literally smells of wet earth and foliage, mixed with fruit berries.

A light bodied wine, smooth and light on the palate with some berry fruits.

It has a light finish too.
Overall a light (how many times can I write that?) pleasant, drinkable table wine that's non-offensive but not outstanding.

Light (again!) but after having recently tasted the Pinga, everything would be!

The winery's website is http://www.mertes.de/.
