2015 BENEDIKT BALTES Buntsandstein Spatburgunder 75cl (Franken, Germany)
Style - Elegant
Grapes - 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting - Just magic. Slender, delicate at first but billowing open in the mouth. Wiry and taut with a smoky, raspberry and violet flavour. Crunchy and elegant texture that is sure to appeal to lovers of classical red Burgundy.
FYI: Benedikt is ambition personified. He bought the near derelict old state wine estate with an investor aged 26 and has set about over turning preconceived ideas about the quality level Pinot Noir can achieve in Baden.
