Okologisches Weingut Schmitt Spatburgunder, Rheinhessen, Germany 2018

Regular price $ 28.50

Even if this is a Pinot Noir from the basic segment by Bianka and Daniel Schmitt, the wine is completely independent. It fermented on the mash for a full six weeks, and it was bottled without adding sulfur. Due to the lack of filtration, the glass is slightly cloudy with violet reflections. The first impression on the nose is very animalistic, a lot of wet hay, autumn leaves and earthy notes. A dark fruit of elderberries and some cassis is reserved. Red currant and spicy components of cocoa and coffee beans in the background. On the palate, the Pinot Noir presents itself with a lot of power and high density, slightly sweet, but by no means overloaded. A juicy acid nerve is in good balance with rich cherry fruit and extract sweetness. Pinot with a strong character, a bit wild, but still typical of the variety.
