Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer KÖNIGSCHAFFHAUSER
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. How many know that Germany is one of the world’s major producers of Pinot Noir? It’s the third largest producer after France and the US. This 2018 has a fairly deep ruby red colour. The nose is quite attractive with spicy, lightly floral, ripe blackberry-plum-cherry fruit along with some faintly smoky, sandalwood notes. It’s fairly dry and medium bodied with spicy, juicy, ripe plum-cherry puree flavours with a lingering, fairly crisp, gentle cedar-tinged finish. Versatile and ready-to-drink, it was aged for up to one year in oak casks. This straightforward, crowd-pleasing Pinot Noir from Baden has 14% alcohol and 6 g/L residual sugar with lot number APN 030/13/17 on the front label. Screwcap closure. CSPC 460410
