This Spatburgunder AKA Pinot Noir hails from the Rheinhessen region of Germany and was grown organically and biodynamically by a very talented husband and wife team who also grow top-tier Riesling. Light-bodied and vivacious, this sprightly, delicious, sour cherry-scented wine was aged in large oak foudres, and really raises the bar for German Pinot Noir.
