This is a unique departure for any Pinot fan. A great mix of wines that range from soft and fruity to barrique aged and Burgundian in style. If you are a Pinot Noir fan, then consider this package made especially for you. From a group of very well regarded Pinot producers comes this unique German Spätburgunder 4-Pack. Although not widely known, Germany is actually the world's 3rd largest Pinot Noir producer! We personally selected four wines that embody each vintner's unique style.
Includes 1 each of the following:
Dr. Hinkel Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) - Semi Dry: Dr. Hinkel amazes us with this flavorful and aromatic Pinot Noir. From sandy, clay soil, the rootstock has taken on a nice mineral composite that merges well with the delicate nature of Pinot. This wine pairs well with a variety of meats, cheeses and cuisine that is delicate to fanciful. It is full of berry aromas, warm tannins, opens very nice and as a Spätlese (late harvest) and halbtrocken (half-dry) goes down extremely easy.
Wasem Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) - Dry: The town of Ingelheim has planted Pinot Noir since the early Middle Ages, when Charlemagne brought over vines from Burgundy. With a microclimate similar to Burgundy, this wine is representative of a soft and well-balanced Pinot, with full berry, plum and lavender aromas. It has a silky smooth texture, is round in the mouth and finishes with a hint of soft tannins. Holger Wasem has done an amazing job with this wine and it is among our favorites.
Gutzler Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) - Dry: With a microclimate very similar to that in Burgundy and soil conditions on par, this wine typifies a full bodied, oak-aged Pinot with full berry aromas and smoky warm tannins. And yes, it is from Germany. A great balanced wine that is outstanding with a variety of game, meats, cheeses and most any cuisine. The Gutzler estate is a boutique VDP producer that continues to make wines of exceptional quality in very limited quantities - be sure to let this one breathe for awhile!
