Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely cool-climate Pinot Noir with hints of cherry, earth, leather and spice. Medium bodied, dry, with light tannins, and tart cherry notes, slight herbaceous and smoky hints on the finish. Enjoy with grilled salmon or pork.
Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This pinot noir was crafted with grapes grown in Germany’s Württemberg production area, the country’s fourth largest wine producing region. Showed an attractive shade of pale ruby. Modest aromas of sweet cherries, caramel and black pepper transitioned to be the primary flavours on the dry, medium bodied palate. Light notes of coco and cedar made an appearance, too. Although short to medium in length, the finish was fruit filled. Enjoy.

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An easy drinking Pinot from the Wirtemberg region of Germany. Medium bodied with aromas of red cherries and smoke with an underlying earthiness. Balanced acidity and tannins with flavours of cherry on a medium finish.

The winery website says to pair with veal and pheasant.
