Burg Ravensburg 2021 Pinot Noir Sulzfeld (Baden)

The distinctive soil-type of the Kraichgau is “Keuper”, a red-coloured, iron-rich clay and limestone conglomerate that seems tailor-made for what might reasonably be termed a “burgundian” style. This nicely coloured and unexaggerated wine has been a success from Day One. It is predictably stylish and honest, with well-judged oak tones and a salty tail. 2018 is a vintage offering lots of fruit ripeness, but the estate’s viticultural expertise still limits the alcohol to 12.15% while bringing out all the savory possibilities of the variety.

Notes from the Producer: The grapes are gently harvested by hand, carefully sorted, and as whole berries, fermented in small batches. The goal is to produce long-lasting Spätburgunder wines with clear-cut fruit, elegance, and a fine tannic structure. Malolactic fermentation takes place in used barrique casks in which the wines mature for 8-12 months.
On the nose: fine roast aromas, cherry, black currant, and plum.
Food affinities: steaks, roast veal, stew of rabbit
Drinking temperature: 16-18°C/60.8-64.4°F
