Weingut Schnaitmann Pinot Noir 'Junge Reben' 2017
an experienced winemaker who is pursuing a ‘Schwäbisch’ or Bavarian philosophy
to create a highly collectible and distinctive style of wines.
Huge care and attention in the vineyard, following organic principles, then a
highly flavour extractive vinification (plenty of whole bunch fermentation and
concentration). There’s only low use of barrique, with conditioning coming from
vats and large old oak tonneaux.
This leads to powerful and intense wines where the fruit is allowed to dominate,
alongside earthy, spicy and herbal flavours.
