Enjoy all the ripe berry fruit and silky charms of Pinot Noir in this pretty, silky red. Germany’s Pfalz region excels with this grape and produces better value wines than Burgundy. From a quality conscious cellar, a red with elegant fruit appeal.
"Delightful Pinot Noir from Germany – winemakers there really know how to handle this finicky grape"
Kirsten Willis Buyer for Germany
Pinot Noir is a finicky grape, much loved in the pricy wines of Burgundy. Germany also makes thoroughly appealing and complex reds from Pinot Noir, usually at a better value price. The warmer climate of the Pfalz is particularly well suited to the grape. Our Buyer was very taken with this tiny-yield red from the Rietburg cellar. Founded in 1958, they’ve had half a century to perfect winemaking skills and the team have won many awards. Yields in 2017 were small but the quality is excellent. The secret with Pinot Noir is to go gently – careful extraction of flavours and no heavy oak, so the wine sings with fruit and no hard edges. You’ll find all that in the Von Reben. Roast chicken, barbecues, creamy pasta or simply solo – enjoy as you like.
