The Devonian slates of the Ahr valley have long been a favoured German spot for Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir), and this commanding red wine shows why. It’s deep in colour, with an arresting aromatic energy which suggests leaf and sap as much as fruit, with lots of elderberry and sloe lift; the oak influence is subtle and, while palpable, supports rather than overshadows the fruit. On the palate, that same energy is much in evidence: a drench of wild plums is now joined by redcurrants and nuanced by soft tannins which slowly fade towards a finish of sap and pepper. Although the acidity is structuring, it is soft and ripe, almost juicy. This harmonious and beautifully vinified wine drinks very well now but doubtless has more in store.
