The Wines of Germany 101
Taking a look at the where, what, whys and whens of Germany
Spatburgunder AKA Pinot Noir
Germany’s Pinot Noirs are finally joining the world’s finest in the global marketplace. With their cooler climate, long hours of summer sunshine, and excellent soils they stand apart from most Pinot Noirs, though there are certain similarities to the wines of New Zealand and Oregon. Wine production is challenging in Germany. Yields are low and work in the vineyard often difficult so it’s no surprise that these wines tend to seem a little pricy, and in fact often are, but they are still fun to try and at their best they are eye openingly good. Supply is spotty at best here in the states though if you’re on the hunt to try a few I would choose from this list of producers.
