The German Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) Pairing showcases the distinction between an Old World earthy style trocken (dry) Pinot Noir next to a more fruit-forward, later harvest Spätlese level wine (off-dry).
This Pairing demonstrates the regional differences of one of the world’s most popular red wine grapes from Germany, the world's 3rd largest producer of Pinot Noir. This is best done by comparing and contrasting the two different styles side-by-side.
This Pairing includes the following wines:
Wine 1: Classic German Spätburgunder (dry) includes fruits like dried strawberries, sour cherries, smoked bacon, cranberries and rhubarb, coupled with undertones of lavender, forest floor and roasted mushrooms.
Wine 2: Fruit-Forward German Spätburgunder (off-dry) offers riper fruit and softer texture. You will find notes of sweet red cherries, juicy plums, pomegranate, roses, cola and caramel.
