One of Germany's finest Pinot-Noirs, this delicious example of the breed is ruby garnet in colour, and bright and attractive on the nose with an abundance of raspberry, strawberry and spice aromas. The palate is racy with velvety tannins and a long finish good enough to win a Gold Medal at the 2017 Sommelier Wine Awards.

"Beautifully ripe yet incredibly smooth, this shows exactly what the very best can create from the finest German Pinot Noir. In my opinion, this vintage hasn't finished winning awards."
