Description

And the inaugural Grand cru Pinot Noir bottling from the signature Heerkretz site, from a clonal mixture (several French/German clones) of 26 year old vines…..I am excited to try this one too….!!! Oliver’s impression: “HEERKRETZ Pinot is our very first try of a “red interpretation” of this unique site. The wine is deep in color but quite fresh and slim in general shape. Complex nose,- a bit reductive with lots of cherry and black currant fruit. This has a pronounced yet fine tannin structure. Let’s see where this goes….”

“Complex berry and spice nose with discreet smoke and graphite notes. Impressive concentration and substantial fine tannins with lively acidity that keeps the robust, long finish very straight. Some real minerality here, too. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.” 94 Stuart Piggott
