A 12 bottle mixed case of four fantastic German Pinot Noir wines.
Dr Heger: 2005 Achkarer Schlossberg Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) Grand Cru Barrique 5:
The 2005 Dr Heger Pinot Noir is produced in the Baden wine region, located on the east bank of the Rhine in southwest Germany. The Spätburgunder dominates almost 40% of Baden's vineyard area, otherwise highly cultivated with white varieties. The Pinot Noir from this region is known for its deeply fruity, rich and full-bodied character.
Dr Heger has utilized the area's warm temperature and volcanic soil to produce the 2005 Achkarer Schlossberg Spätburgunder, a noble and stylish Pinot with a deep bouquet. The rich scent is wide open and exudes a juicy aroma, reminiscent of plum compote with whispers of liquorice, black truffles and vanilla. On the palate, this wine has a powerful yet balanced body that pleasantly coats the tannin structure. It has an evolving aroma of spicy cherries, wild raspberries and a touch of mocha delight. There is an interesting effect of wrapping everything tightly around a mineral core.
The 2005 Achkarrer Schlossberg has outstanding length and perfectly integrated wood in the finish. Similar to a Cru from Chassagne-Montrachet, this German Pinot Noir should be an ideal partner for fine game dishes.
Friedrich Becker: Spätburgunder, Kammerberg Grand Cru dry:
The Pfalz wine producing region, in which this Kammerberg Grand Cru Pinot Noir was produced, is the largest in Germany and is known for the simple beauty of their wines. The Friedrich Becker estate contributes to the region's reputation by continually producing Pinot Noir of the highest standard, with a natural finesse.
Their Spätburgunder, Kammerberg Grand Cru dry is a ruby red Pinot Noir with darker reflexes. The nose consists of a delicious bounty of berry aromas: raspberries, cherries, wild berries tempered with pepper. One can enjoy a fresh, juicy elegance on the palette for a pleasant length and medium structure.
Meyer- Naekel: 2008/2009 Spätburgunder selection:
Meyer- Naekel, the passionate wine-makers of expressive, individual wines, operates in the perfectly sunny Ahr region of Germany. The estate is dominated with 75% Fruehburgunder, a variety of Pinot Noir grape which ripens early; the single fruit has rendered an elegant combination of fruity tastes - blackberry, morello cherry, red current and raspberry. There is even more depth of flavour with tastes of vanilla, dark chocolate and hints of clove, underlined with fine oak.
The Meyer Naekel 2008/2009 vintage is full-bodied with a beautifully understated tannin structure.
Bercher: 2007/8 Estate Spätburgunder Barrique:
10th generation winemakers, the Bercher family manages an estate in the commercially successful Baden wine region of Germany.
The 2007/8 Spätburgunder Barrique is the result of growth in volcanic soil, lightly handled grapes, natural sedimentation, meticulously monitored and temperature controlled fermentation on the skins for 18 days, and aging in a variety of oak casks. This final process lasts for approximately 15 months.
A juicy, ruby red wine is the Bercher estate's sophisticated product of modern and traditional techniques; it is one with a sweet-savoury nose and hints of dark chocolate. On the palette, the taste is characterized by orange and figs and is combined with a gentle acidity.
