Rainer Schnaitmann makes low intervention wines in Fellbach near Stuttgart. He
is one of those winemakers who (alongside his mentor Clemens Busch) is revered
in his homeland, but less well-known outside. His style is distinctively
‘Schwäbisch’, with balanced extraction and extensive use of large old oak
foudres. He tells me that he loves to focus on the earthiness and juice of his
fruit, rather than producing a red Burgundy lookalike. Whilst his Spätburgunder
and Grauburgunder are outstanding, coaxing the very best out of the solar 2018
vintage, it’s always his treatment of the oft-underrated Lemberger
(Blaufränkisch) that ravishes.

"Deep, smoky, earthy and vegetal aromas, as well as a ton of forest-berry notes.
A concentrated but lithe palate with an excellent balance of ripe fruit,
generous tannins and lively acidity through the long finish. Better from 2021."
94 pts, James Suckling
