    Not a classic Pinot Noir. Taste: Alot of spice and pepper. Bouquet: Fresh, fruity and abit mouldy. If it is fairly priced ok. Do not drink it to warm. Read More

  • Schloss Halbturn Red Blend Impérial Rot 2005


    still very hard tannins, as 2005 wasn´t a good year for the red wines of this region. Too much extraction and new wood. Will hopefully melow in 3 or 4 years but overall not a big wine. Read More
