Tasting note

Intensely perfumed with raspberry, strawberry and red cherry notes and an underlying earthiness and minerality giving it an edge. This wine has subtle tannins, and its vibrant acidity makes this Spätburgunder a seriously refreshing wine.

Food pairing

Try with a roasted pork, crispy duck, or with British cheeses like Tunworth or Cornish Yarg.

About the producer

The Stodden family has been involved in winemaking in the Ahr Valley since 1578. Today Alexander Stodden is responsible for producing some of the greatest and most distinctive Pinot Noir’s in Germany. Quality is the key to production: pruning is carried out both in winter and spring, with a green harvest in summer. All the grapes are handpicked and undergo selection within both the vineyards and cellar. The slate soils offer the wines a specific flavour profile, with a defining pithy edge. If Pinot Noir was grown in Savennières, it would probably taste like this.
