Story of the wine:
Although Germany is best known for white wines there is a trend towards growing more red wines and the Pfalz region is leading the way. In 2010 40% of its wine was red. That Pinot Noir thrives here should not be too much of a surprise as it is on the same latitude as Rheims in the heart of the Champagne producing region. The Ruppertsberger co-operative founded over 100 years ago, has an excellent reputation for the quality of its wines and its dynamic approach.
Grape(s): 100% Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir)
Area: From the co-operative’s vineyards around Ruppertsberger in the Pfalz
Germany has been producing excellent red wines for some years and the Ruppertsberger winery rightly, has an excellent reputation for its wines. Classic Pinot Noir strawberry nose, medium bodied, lovely fruit on the palate and a balancing dryness.
