Künstler Hochheim Reichestal Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) ‘GG’ VDP.Grosses Lage

Picked at optimum ripeness, this wine has powerful aromas of wild cherry and cassis, whilst the velvety tannins provide a spicy edge and great ageing potential.

The Reichestal’s calcareous rock, sandy loam and pure clay is ideal for what are called ‘Burgundy’ varieties, added to which its exposed position at the mouth of the Main and Rhine, the Reichs Valley, is one of the warmest in the Rheingau.

Residual Sugar 0.5 g/l
Acidity 5.5 g/l
Alcohol 13.5 %

Serious Pinot Noir from the ‘Reichestal’ (Rich Valley) vineyard – “beauty and silk” says Gunter Künstler.

Serve with strong, sharp cheeses. For a main course, do try game or wild boar. Perfect with medallions of venison with a rich berry sauce, or pears, and of course, a pinot noir jus!
