Meyer-Näkel Spätburgunder Trocken 2018
Widely regarded as one of the best Pinot Noir producers in Germany, Meyer-Näkel is an important name in the small but renowned Ahr region in Germany. The estate holds three Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru) vineyards and produce Pinot Noir almost exclusively.
Transparent ruby red colours. The Spätburgunder Trocken 2018 has a flattering bouquet of slightly earthy blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, light cherries and subtle smoky notes. Juicy and fresh on the palate with a wild berry extravaganza, chocolate and spicy traces of juniper and violets. Smooth and elegant. Characterised by a dense mouthfeel, velvety tannins and a long finish.
The grapes are hand-picked, gently pressed and fermented in open-top temperature-regulated stainless steel tanks. The wine is then matured in 6–8 year old large oak barrels for 10 months.
