Pale cherry red colour. Theres an attractive herby, savoury, minerally character to the nose which shows some lightly aromatic red cherry fruit. The palate has a smooth, elegant sort of fruitiness, with a hint of grippy spiciness backing up the red cherry fruits, as well as a trace of undergrowthy complexity. A light, attractive Pinot of real character.
The Pfalz lies between the Haardt Mountains and the Rhine River, directly north of France's Alsace region. As in Alsace, the mountains protect the area from cold, wet Atlantic weather, making it one of hte warmer and drier areas of Germany. This climate makes it possible to achieve full ripeness in every vintage - the key to making wines with rich concentration, fine balance and deep character.
