Cracking wine for under 5 euro

This has to be one of the best red wines under 5 euro I have ever tasted.
A 2006 Oberrotweiler Henkenberg Spätburgunder trocken from the Kaiserstuhl region. Cost EUR 4.99.
Lovely and smooth with plenty of complexity. Produced by the Kaiserstühler Winzerverein in Oberrotweil, it outshines the most of the fare the competing wine cooperatives in and around Weil produce for the same price. You'd also be hard-pushed to find a pinot as good as this under 10 pounds in the UK.
