GERMANY

German wine is primarily produced in the west of Germany, along the river Rhine and its tributaries, with the oldest plantations going back to the Roman era. Approximately 60 percent of the German wine production is situated in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, where 6 of the 13 regions (Anbaugebiete) are situated. Germany as the eighth largest wine-producing country in the world. White wine accounts for almost two thirds of the total production. Among enthusiasts, Germany's reputation is primarily based on wines made from the Riesling grape variety, which at its best is used for aromatic, fruity and elegant white wines that range from very crisp and dry to well-balanced, sweet and of enormous aromatic concentration.

  1. BECKER 2014 PINOT NOIR SPATBURGUNDER GERMANY

    Item #: i_308344
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    In the small town of Schweigen, Becker's vineyards straddle the French border… about 70% of this wine is grown in France, the other 30% on the German side. The soils consist of limestone covered in a clay/loam mix. The grapes are all destemmed and fermented in open tanks. The final blend is aged in large oak casks and 10% smaller barriques, all neutral oak. This is an incredibly drinkable, lovely Pinot with sweet fruit married to exceptional minerality. Notes of dried cranberry, pomegranate and light cherry entice the palate. Year after year, Becker's basic cuvee achieves the holy grail of Pinot: a light body belied by delicious flavor. Great on its own, but also compliments heavier seafood, poultry, and fine cuts of beef and game.

  2. FALKENSTEIN 17 PINOT NOIR SPATBURGUNDER ROTWEIN NIEDERMENNIGER SONNENBERG TROCKEN RED

    Item #: i_374427
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    WINE ADVOCATE - 93 POINTS The 2017 Niedermenniger Sonnenberg Red Wine trocken offers a deep, tart, fresh and mineral nose of black cherries, berries and licorice. Round and terribly fresh, with remarkable grip and tension, this is a pretty austere, mineral Pinot Noir with good potential. It's concentrated, fleshy and pure and low in sulfites.

    MOSEL FINE WINES - 90 POINTS The 2017er Niedermenniger Sonnenberg Rotwein Trocken is made from what was planted by the Webers as Spatburgunder 25 years ago but which the authorities now say is a mutation and not legally Spätburgunder, hence the fact that the wine is bottled simply as Rotwein, meaning red wine. It was fermented and aged for 18 months in traditional Fuder casks (hence the late AP number) without chaptalization and malolactic fermentation. It offers a beautiful nose made of cherry, mint, clove, herbs and a hint of soy sauce. The wine is beautifully light-footed and engaging on the silky and focused palate. The finish is still slightly hard, but nothing what a little bottle aging cannot wipe away.

  3. PHILIPP KUHN 2015 PINOT NOIR TRADITION SPATBURGUNDER

    Item #: i_399970
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    This Pinot Noir originates from various vineyards around Laumersheim and Grosskarlbach: Loess loam soils mixed with fine-grained limestone shape these wines. A medium-bodied Pinot Noir whose elegant aromas conjure up the scent of ripe wild strawberries, dried prunes, almonds, marinated cherries as well as the subtle undertones typical of a Pinot Noir such as melted dark chocolate and leather. Of medium density and structure this wine exhibits the typical elegance of a Pinot Noir with a finish of vigorous yet mature tannins. This wine has fine acidity and can be combined with many dishes and is suitable for ageing.

    Wine Tip : Your are probably familiar with Pinot Noir from France (mostly burgundy), from California or even Oregon but you might be surprised to discover that Germany is the 3rd producer in volume of this amazing grape variety. Germany is not known to be the warmest location in the world. For a long time, Pinot noir had a hard time to reach the maturity level required to make world class wines. This very bottle rocks an Alcohol level of 14%, so the ripeness is there, combined with a perfect usage of old and new barrels and you got a stunning wine. This is complex, fun, balanced and is ready to drink now or can age beautifully for the next 5 years.

    DELICIOUS! Von Winning practices organic and sustainable viticulture. This dry rose is a light salmon color. The aromas of just ripe strawberries, lilies, and a hint of golden delicious apple.

  5. ZIEREISEN 2016 PINOT NOIR TSCHUPPEN

    Item #: i_372105
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    There are initial aromas of cherries, plums, and cedar which are then perfectly complemented by flavors of dark cherries and chocolate. The full flavors are then charmingly balanced by a medium to light mouthfeel but which are framed by very nice tannins and good acidity.
