Weingut Stigler Freiburg Schlossberg Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) Grosses Gewächs ‘GG’

A finely balanced and delicate red wine with hints of pepper and dark cherries, distinct minerality and a long finish.

The grapes for this wine grow on the course-grained gneiss soils (formed from sedimentary rock), narrow terraces and steep slopes of the Freiburger Schloßberg (Castle Hill).

Gneiss soil helps foster intense and complex flavours in the fruit, whilst the steep slopes face south and offer optimal conditions to create outstanding wines.

Along with the Doktorgarten, the Schlossberg is one of Germany’s 100 top vineyard sites. This is among the most sought after wines produced from the Pinot Noir grape in Baden – unsurprisingly this is something that’s reflected in its price.

In Germany, particularly Baden, which is famous for its hunting, this wine is perfect for ‘Wild, Geflügel, und Wildschwein’ – game birds, wild boar and venison. This is a wine that can easily partner rich berry sauces, whilst, at the other end of the scale, Asian fusion food works exceptionally well – think crispy aromatic duck or Peking Duck.
