Pinot Noir grapes are one of the most ancient varieties of domesticated vitis vinifera, the vine that makes the world’s most famous wine grapes. Its first known mention of this red wine grape spelled as Pinot (Pineau was another common spelling) in literature dates back to a Burgundian text from 1375. With similar climate and growing conditions to Burgundy and northern French wine making regions, Germany has been growing more and more great Pinot Noir as vintages go on. Weingut Schäfer is a family winery in the Rheinhessen of Germany, producing organic grapes with great respect to the land since 1948. Their Pinot Noir has the ripe red fruit found in New World Pinot Noir with the subtle florality and savoriness that has made French Pinot Noir world-famous. Enjoy a juicy palate full of red cherries, concord grape, violets, cumin, and cinnamon. This delicious red has a touch of earthy flavour, adding distinction to the pure, ripe fruit notes. Bright, juicy, deep berry flavors, with a well-integrated earthiness & a hint of smoke that round out the complexities on the palate. A wonderfully balanced, focused wine, bursting with character. A gorgeous food wine to pair with spiced lamb burgers or classic Coq au Vin.
